ABSTRACT
The article features the Gardens of the American Rose Center located in Shreveport, Los Angeles, California. Here, roses are subjected to harsh climatic conditions and if they survive, then they could be grown at nearly any other place. There are 65 separate gardens where visitors can view, enjoy and learn about roses. The largest is the Dayna & Ronnie Sawyer Memorial Prayer Garden. The first rose research conducted here was the Easy-Tea Hybrid Rose Research Project, launched in 2009.
