Forty Heroes

Forty Heroes

On April 27, 2006 "Remember Me" Rose Garden announced in New York City, “Forty Heroes”. “Forty Heroes” a beautiful golden yellow rose is named for the crew and passengers of United Flight 93. Courageously they fought back forcing hijackers to crash the plane in rural Pennsylvania instead of the intended target in Washington, D.C., changing the course of history.

“Forty Heroes” was hybridized by Ping Lim of Bailey Nurseries, Inc., www.baileynurseries.com. “Forty Heroes” will be available in the spring 2008 at local garden centers.

 

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.
