May 14, 2020

Fallon Shea is a self-described rose devotee and roseologist currently making her life with roses in Southern California as a grower, designer, artist, and writer.

She says that roses found her when she was lost at the age of 19, “tricked her into gardening” then, and have kept her happily under their spell as their devoted student ever since from pruning 10,000 roses in the field, to savoring their tart hips, to incorporating all stages of them into her floral designs and all parts of them into her artwork.

She joins us this week to talk about some specific roses she loves, general rose care, their enigmatic colors, and the magic of them in any diverse and lively garden. Join Cultivating Place this week for all this and more.
