Bailey Nurseries New Variety Chosen for the “Remember Me” Rose Garden

St. Paul, Minn. (Spring 2010) – Patriot Dream, a new rose from Bailey Nurseries, is the 2010 “Remember Me” Rose Garden selection. The vibrant, deep salmon-orange blooms and superior garden performance of this beautiful rose make it a perfect choice to honor the men and women who were on American Airlines Flight 77 and those in the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.

Patriot Dream is an own root rose with a fresh, fruity fragrance. The beautiful salmon buds open to showcase a vibrant orange, hybrid tea shaped bloom that perfectly contrasts with the bright disease resistant foliage.

A donation from the sale of each rose will be made to the “Remember Me” Rose Garden, a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating three gardens, one each in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania, to honor the memory and spirit of each man, woman and child who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.

“Bailey Nurseries is honored to be part of this unique project,” says Pat Bailey, Bailey Nurseries Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We hope that Patriot Dream serves as living memorial to the brave men and women at the Pentagon and on Flight 77.”
