Earth-Kind Roses: What’s in a Name?

According to the Society of American Florists, 250 million roses will be given this Valentine’s Day. If you like the idea of giving this traditional flower for Valentine’s Day, but want something that lasts longer than a bouquet, consider gifting your beloved an Earth-Kind rose to plant instead, said Allison Watkins, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service horticulture agent for Tom Green County.
