Celebrity Roses: George Burns
One look at a ‘George Burns’ rose will bring a smile to your face, much like the comedian and actor George Burns did for generations of fans for 100 years until his death in 1996. Each small bloom, growing in clusters, carries a unique rainbow of color in stripes from yellow to red, pink to white. While the comedian was known for wafts of cigar smoke, the ‘George Burns’ rose smells pleasantly of light citrus.
