Half remembered names from childhood lead us back into a lost garden world where Rose of Spain lay next to the Rose of the Indies, Soldiers and Sailors marched through the borders, and Melancholy Gentleman joined with Mourning Widow in the shady nooks. A Ladder to Heaven might rescue you from an Impudent Lawyer or should you put your faith in a Spangled Beau? Join us to explore the origin and identification of these traditional garden flower names and many more, as we celebrate the joy of Summer Sottekins and Steeple Bells!
