A Rose (Baron Girod de l’Ain) and a Tip for a Happy, Healthy and Successful Life


Baron Girod de l'Ain

 Rose:   Baron Girod de l’Ain

Class:   Hybrid Perpetual

Fragrant:   Yes  

Discovered by:   Reverchon, 1897



Baron Girod de l’Ain is an unusual rose and is a sport of “Eugene Furst”. The blooms are large, bright crimson, sweetly scented, double flowers, and complemented with leathery dark green leaves and reasonably healthy. Baron Girod de l’Ain has a very decorative flower with petal irregularly scalloped and rimmed with white on its cupped flower. It is quite beautiful. It opens cupped, with a ragged looking petal edges and as it matures, the outer petal curves outside while the inner petal stays cupped. This vigorous bush has an upright habit with plenty of stout thorns and the flowers repeat throughout the season. It deserves a place in your garden for its novelty. Plant it in the perennial bed next to silver foliage plants and purple flowers to accentuate its exotic and unique qualities. 


 Tip #4 – Don’t waste time grieving on past mistakes. Learn from them and move on.


Until Next time. Stop and Smell the Roses
