United Flight 93 Gets Honorary Rose

Non-profit organization Rose Garden has named a new yellow rose in honor of the passengers and crew of United Airlines flight 93, which crashed Sept. 11, 2001. Named Forty Heroes, the rose was hybridized by Ping Lim of Bailey Nurseries in St. Paul, Minn. It will be available to garden centers in 2008. Rose Garden is dedicated to creating Remember Me rose gardens in New York, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania to honor Americans who died during the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Forty Heroes is the fourth rose introduced by Rose Garden, following Firefighter, Soaring Spirits and We Salute You.
