Dr. Walter Van Fleet Rose

Daily Image - 4 July 2011 - Dr. Walter Van Fleet Rose

This Hybrid Wichurana, large-flowered climber rose was originally beside my cousin Frank Reeves’ maternal grandfather, Tom Ellis’ home on the Woodstock Road in Yarmouth County. When his mother, Veda Ellis married, she moved the plant to her new home next door. This home is currently occupied by my cousin Frank. Last year my wife took a cutting so we can help keep it in the family. This cutting now resides happily beside a white picket fence in our garden.
