The Fleur d'Eden garden started as just an empty abandonned lot. We had built it up to almost 400 roses when Hurricane Katrina came. We thought all was lost, but like the city of New Orleans, roses are resilient. Now the garden is as vibrant as ever.

Over 40 years ago I fell in love with my first rose. I am still sharing that love in every arrangement I share with you.
