Origin of Name
Named in celebration of the 250th anniversary of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew in London. We recently replanted the rose garden behind the famous Palm House, returning it to the layout of 1848 and filling it with a wonderful mixture of English Roses, Old Roses and other shrub roses.
