Firefighter Rose

In September, 2003, "Remember Me" Rose Garden announced "Firefighter" the first of the eleven roses to be named. "Firefighter" is a red hybrid tea rose to honor the 343 firefighters who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.

Gold Medal Rose Garden "Firefighter" joins previous Gold Medal winners in the Gold Medal Rose Garden located in Portland Rose Garden at Washington Park photo taken by Marjorie Wallace - Washington State.

We invite you to share in the vision and participate with us in making the "Remember Me" Rose Garden a reality.

A perpetual Maintenance Fund has been created to support and maintain each of the three Gardens. To finance this fund, eleven roses will be named in honor of the victims of September 11, 2001, a donation from the sale of each rose will be directed to the Maintenance Fund.
