In November of last year our small region in Northern California was thrown into chaos with the fast burning Camp Fire in the bucolic town of Paradise. A town with so many fond memories of my childhood taking Sunday drives with my grandparents to see Honey Run Bridge. When the dust settled and the smoke disappeared it was the most destructive wildfire in California history leaving thousands homeless and killing 67 people. Words cannot truly describe the days and weeks that followed as this devastating fire hit very close to home with members of Team Menagerie having both children and parents lose their homes. Our farm too was covered in dust & ash prematurely ending our garden rose growing season and sadly forcing us to cancel customer orders. Today Paradise is growing from the ashes as businesses start to open and people are beginning the rebuilding process. While progress has been made many are still living in temporary housing and the community still has a long way to go to be made whole again. I was so blown away last November by our customers who immediately wanted to donate and help our local community. I knew that I needed to find a way to help those in Paradise the best way I knew how - by spreading flower cheer. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the ‘Tequilla Supreme’ rose will benefit the North Valley Community Foundation Camp Fire Relief Fund to help aid those Paradise and the entire surrounding communities recover from the loss of homes, businesses, schools and spirit. This rose was generously donated to us by our friends at Star Roses & Plants so 100% of your purchase goes directly to the NVCF. I can’t thank them enough for their generosity. Please buy a rose and help those still recovering from this devastating fire.

With a vibrant orange and pink hue Tequila Supreme looks like a sunset on the beach. It is a vigorous producer even in hot humid climates. It won the prestigious Edith Wharton Award for Best Floribunda at the Biltmore Rose Trials in 2014. It will be a perfect addition to your garden or farm.
