17 Flowers with Celebrity Names


Laura had this to say in the comments of Insects with Celebrity Names:

Love this!

Makes me wonder about a related topic: how many roses are named for classic movie stars? My dad has Ingrid Bergman roses in his garden.

Best wishes,
Laura

  1. I thought for SURE Ingrid Bergman roses would be white! From the sound of it, one could ahve quite the 'garden of stars'! Hmmm Since my house is named Casablanca, I.B.'s might have to be a MUST next spring, along with a few Lucille Balls and Judy Garlands onthe patio!

  2. Excellent idea! Be sure to post pictures on your blog when they bloom.

    I'm partial to the James Mason rose - bold and solid.
