W O W !! 💓 Our friend Ping Lim continues to delight us with his breeding work!! The True Bloom™ Roses collection developed by @altmanplants is one to look for! And to think he has more break-through intros underway…

Pictured: True Bloom™ True Sincerity Rose (Zone 5) glistening after a spring shower. This collection of roses features full-petaled, florist style roses without compromising on black spot resistance or garden performance. In Ping's words, he breeds roses with strong 'Chi' that are truly easy to grow. That's most evident with True Passion (aka Double Ten) – a rose that swept the Biltmore Int'l Rose Awards, our nursery trials, as well as testing by our local garden center partners. It's the best rose we grow!! Check out our video on YouTube for more details.

While Ping is a world-renowned rosarian, he is a super nice, down-to-earth plant lover with an inspiring story. It's an honor to be working with him! 🤗 @rosesbyping

Rhododendron 'Holden' (Zone 5) – Delightful rosy pink flowers with a slight fragrance. Hybridized by Tony Shammarello near Cleveland, Ohio as a cross of two tough, reliable varieties – Cunningham's White x red catawbiense seedling (a North American native species). Introduced in 1958 and to this day remains a very popular choice for the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region.

Pictured:
Malus Royal Raindrops® PP14,375 (Flowering Crabapple / Zone 4) in full bloom at the nursery. Dainty pinkish red flowers highlight purple, cut-leaf foliage in spring. While most crabapples are susceptible to a range of disease, this selection from J. Frank Schmidt & Son boasts superior resistance to scab, fire blight, rust and powdery mildew 🏆 – something we can attest to after many years of growing. An upright-spreading habit topping out at 20’ high and 15’ wide.
