Open Garden, 350 Chaparral Street, Salinas


Ellen Willmott, hybrid tea, 1935
Visit my garden on Sunday, May 27, noon to 5 p.m. Gardening public welcome. All parking is on the street. Enter the back yard through the side gate.

I haven't opened my garden for viewing in 7 years and hope that this opportunity will bring many visitors. Several of the roses have been in the garden since 1993 and are showing at their very best this season.

It's an eclectic selection which includes hybrid teas, floribundas, miniatures, shrubs and climbers. I have a good sampling of damask, alba, hybrid perpetuals, polyanthas, species and noisettes as well. I also have an array of succulents and other garden plants which should be of interest.

Baronne Prévost, hybrid perpetual, 1841 -Winner, Best Old Garden Rose at the 2018 Monterey Bay Rose Society show.
The rose pictured above was one of a dozen roses clusters that bush produced. The fragrance is awesome.
