Frank's Flowers - "Monique The Rose"
Click here to learn how to Prune & Trim Roses
Today's Flower Feature is "Monique The Rose".
This rose is named after my little sister - it was originally from my sister's Wedding Bouquet.  My dad used his rooting technique to start rose bushes from the cut roses that were in her bouquet.  I don't think that these pictures do this rose justice - it is amazing how the back side of each petal is pure white and the top side of each petal is the brightest fuchsia red.  These gorgeous rose bushes have withstood the test of time since she was married 17 years ago! . 
This is a precious rose - almost as precious as my beautiful baby sister.

In the picture below:  "Monique the bride" is my beautiful sister, I am the Maid-of-honor and if you look closely you will see "Monique The Rose" in the bouquets.

If you look closely you can see the roses in the bouquet


Please ENJOY this digital bouquet of "Monique The Rose"!

  9. Amazing! What a gardener your father is. I had roses when I lived in California and had no idea how to prune them. My sister-in-law showed me, and of course with time, I have completely forgot. You are so dear to share tips. The Monique roses are lovely. What an awesome dad! :) Have a beautiful weekend!
