Submitted by ub on Fri, 05/11/2012 - 15:39

Visit NYBG to see the early burst of color in the award-winning, sustainable Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden. The mild weather has prompted roses to bloom about a month earlier than in previous years. Peak bloom is expected just in time for Mother’s Day Weekend. A full complement of rose-themed public education programs kicks off this weekend, including daily tours, a special full-day lecture series, Home Gardening Demonstrations, and Adult Education classes, all providing opportunities to appreciate and learn more about the rose, an iconic flower whose beauty continues to fascinate.
