The Mary Adrienne rose, named for Mary Hiers, former Fernbank Director, has been planted in the Robert L. Staton Rose Garden. The plant is available for sale through Fernbank Science Center by calling 678-874-7102 and asking for Connie Kneisel. Proceeds from the sale of Mary Adrienne help support the rose garden.
Reminiscent of the earlier Floribundas, bountiful clusters come on every stem to cloak the rounded plant from top to bottom with foliage and flower.
The color varies from deep coral pink in warm weather to glowing orange-red in cooler temperatures.
Consistent performer in all climates: floriferous, bushy and clean.
Its abundant clean gray-green foliage and nearly consistent color makes it a useful landscape addition or just a showy specimen for the garden.
