The Rose Garden

South lawn of the Hotel Florence

The rose garden underwent renovation at the turn of our century. Eleven individual beds were re-established, and all of the rose bushes replaced except for two. The roses in the perimeter beds are Sevilana roses, which bloom spring through first frost and boast bright red hips through the winter. The roses in the interior beds are varieties or heirloom roses that were developed through the dates of George Pullman, 1831-1897. The herbs were added during the rejuvenation to provide a variety in color, scent and texture.
