Heritage Roses with Shauna Moore
June is a magnificent time to feature heritage roses as many of these beauties only bloom during this month.
Shauna Moore provides us with an exploration of this multifaceted group that is the predecessor of today's roses. Shauna is an expert rosarian who works as the Horticulture Supervisor for the Somerset County Park Commission.
