Featured Bloom

Large-Flowered Climbing Rose

Rosa ‘Climbing American Beauty’

Thousands of rose bushes are cultivated in the Cranford Rose Garden, including wild species, old garden roses, hybrid teas, grandifloras, floribundas, polyanthas, climbers, and ramblers.

Plants in Bloom

  • Hundreds of pink 5-petaled blossoms stand out against a dark trunk and blue sky.

    Cherry Blossoms

    Cherry trees usually begin to flower in early April. An individual tree may only bloom for a week or two, depending on the weather. Of course, if they were in bloom all the time, they wouldn’t be so special.
