The article features Ivy Keen, a 12-year-old girl member of the Houston Rose Society. Keen started hybridizing roses at the age of 6 because her parents have more than 300 roses in their yard. The author notes that the roses Keen hybridize are exceptional for their unique traits in color and form. She already joined local rose shows, won two ribbons and received the Young Hybridizer's Award. Her first rose was a seedling from a Louise Estes' x 'George Burns' cross.
