The article presents information, memories and experiences with Brownell Roses, which were bred by the Brownell family of Little Compton, Rhode Island. The Brownells established five goals for their hybridizing and they chose to continue the work of the late rose breeder Walter Van Fleet. The family produced their patented plants and this later on expanded to a business called Sub Zero. As noted, thousands of roses were budding by 1953.
