A Legacy of Roses
In the world of horticulture, roses are revered as the ultimate expression of beauty and elegance. The journey began 52 years ago, when the handful owner set out to create a rose garden that would stand the test of time. Over the years, we've painstakingly collected and nurtured a diverse array of both modern and antique rose varieties, each chosen for their unique charm and character.
The Allure of Modern Roses
Modern roses, with their vibrant hues and bold blooms, bring a contemporary flair to our gardens. Varieties like the velvety 'Queen Elizabeth' and the exuberant 'Mr. Lincoln' lend a vivid, modern touch to our landscape. These roses, meticulously bred for their color palette and disease resistance, add a dynamic element to the garden, offering a fresh perspective on the timeless beauty of this beloved flower.
Timeless Elegance of Antique Roses
Antique roses, on the other hand, speak to the romance and nostalgia of bygone eras. With their delicate petals and intoxicating fragrances, roses like the 'Madame Hardy' and the 'Rosa Mundi' transport our guests to a time of refined grace and elegance. These heirloom varieties, often with centuries of history, infuse a sense of nostalgia into the garden, connecting us to the past while celebrating the present.
A Backdrop of Natural Majesty
Surrounding our gardens is the breathtaking tableau of Lake Atitlán and its sentinel volcanoes.
