Carleton Growers Limited know how to create the sweet smell of success. They developed a new hybrid red rose that has all the good characteristics of a premium rose variety. Partners Fred and Darlene Hogg and Ronald Bazinet conducted the initial propagation of the rose and then sent it for grafting to experts in California, reducing development time from three years to six months. The new 'Kajusaro' rose offers a steady supply of premium hearty plants to wholesale and florist customers. Bushes, patio planters and cut roses are available in this new variety. Consumer response has been overwhelming - and with 30,000 bushes currently in production, everything's coming up roses for these innovative growers.
