Peggy Martin Roses

There is nothing I like more than a story behind the meaning of doing something.

When the garage was enclosed on one end, I knew I wanted the wall to make a statement.

We added a planter and filled it with plants.

But I needed to find something special for the wall.

I searched for something extra special for the wall.

One day, this photo popped up on my feed

Holy cow!! I want that !!

Thank goodness there is a trail to find it.

This rose has a story and it was absolutely perfect.

“She” is the classic old Southern rose “Peggy Martin,” named for an avid Louisiana gardener whose home and property stood under 20 feet of salt water for two weeks after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The only plants to survive were one crinum and a tough-as-nails beauty of a rose that Martin had acquired through pass-along cuttings from friends in New Orleans.

One year later, ours doesn’t quite look like this yet but it’s a great start.

Steve built a cedar trellis for Peggy to trail up on

We even had blooms this year and they are stunning

If Peggy can survive two weeks under hurricane floor waters, I think she should survive here. A beautiful piece of history attached to a beautiful piece of history

Have a great weekend.
