Growing Tributes to Honor Those We Love
Bald Cypress A Tree for Mac

Planting a commemorative tree is a meaningful way to remember a special person or event in your life. Consider a “remembrance space” in your landscape, where you and your family can rest in the shade, recall happy times and dream of a wonderful future. If you don’t have the room in your landscape, you can plant a tree at a commemorative grove in your area. It’s an amazing way to let beautiful memories live and grow.

All roses are beautiful, but the fully double blooms of Remember Me® are hard to forget. The everblooming, fragrant, amber-yellow flowers of this upright, bushy tea rose have up to 25 petals and deep pink highlights and edges. The mildew-resistant cultivar prefers moderate temps and offers the perfect touch to sunny foundations, mixed borders and cutting gardens. It’s a great symbolic rose for honoring someone special.
