Did you know that in 1957, Audie Murphy had a rose named in his honor? This rose was one he apparently enjoyed too because he planted them in his yard at his home in Toluca Lake, California. The rose is smaller than most domestic roses seen in flower shops. This particular rose is propigated from root stock by the grower, Vintage Gardens. Because of this, it takes about a year to receive the plant once an order has been placed.
Vintage Garden describes the rose as one grown from a "custom root". It is categorized as a "hybrid tea" variety. It's color is listed as salmon and its scent is strong. It was introduced by Lammerts and it has good rebloom qualities. The grower also states that the Audie Murphy Rose is "... one of the standouts; a vibrant lipstick shade of red that glows in the garden, with a bright, fresh scent."
