What’s blooming? Roses!

The rose has long been a favored subject in art due to its natural beauty and its rich symbolic history. Visitors to the Cummer Museum will find roses not only in some of the paintings of the collection but also within the Gardens. Being the national flower of England, our English garden which dates back to 1903, is a fitting home for them. The particular breed visitors will encounter is called ‘Rêve d’Or’ which translates from the French to mean “Dream of Gold.” Nearly thornless and displaying a wealth of large, loosely double, buff yellow petals, our roses are a valued addition to the Museum’s collection.
