Ranunculus – for a flower so pretty, its name certainly stumbles across the tongue, doesn’t it?

June is National Rose Month in America. In fact, America’s love affair with the rose goes all the way back to the Father of Our Country (and prolific rose breeder), George Washington. George bred and developed a variety named for his mother that we still enjoy today! Roses are popular all year round, but June – prime wedding season – is where we come to celebrate this timeless, versatile beauty.
