Julia Child's a Winner

The All-American Rose Selections for 2006

It’s time to start thinking about where to plant these winning beauties in your rose garden next year, including Julia Child (WEKvossutono), a butter-gold (naturally) floribunda with a sweet licorice perfume that was personally chosen by the legendary chef herself.

Other winners (left to right):
Tahitian Sunset
Rainbow Sorbet (BAIprez) (Floribunda)
