The ‘Huntington’s Hundredth’ Rose
2:30 p.m.–3:30 p.m.
Rose hybridizer Tom Carruth, the E. L. and Ruth B. Shannon Curator of the Rose Collections at The Huntington, introduces his newest floribunda, 'Huntington's Hundredth', developed to commemorate the institution's upcoming centennial, which gets underway in the fall. The old-fashioned rose is a soft pastel yellow touched with a blush of orchid pink and cream, with a powerful fragrance reminiscent of citrus blossoms and sweet fruit. The 'Huntington's Hundredth' rose is available for purchase following the talk, along with other bareroot varieties.
