Remember to Smell the Roses

Remember to Smell the Roses

Share This Post

Did you know America’s first hybridized rose was born in Charleston? In the early 1800s, a rice planter crossed two rose species to create Champneys’ Pink Cluster, which was later named Blush Noisette. The new Noisette roses became a sensation and added a beguilingly fragrant chapter to Charleston’s colorful history. Today, many Charlestonians carry forth a passion for gardening, and roses play a special role in the city’s botanical wonderland persona.

Delicate blossoms, pastel colors, and mesmerizing scents… take a leisurely stroll through the city to experience the splendor of Charleston-in-bloom. Or, if you are on the hunt to see specific Heritage Rose, download this map prepared by the Charleston Horticultural Society: {click here}
