 The gorgeous Catalina Beach Garden Rose is a glowing
yellow gold rose that starts as a tight fist of petals and opens
into a huge canary colored flower. Exclusively grown at Alexandra
Farms, a boutique flower grower specializing in nostalgic, romantic,
fresh-cut garden roses. The farm is located in the fertile savanna of
Bogotá, high in the Andes Mountains of Colombia, where warm days
and cool nights are perfect for growing roses.

This buttery beautiful garden rose variety is named after the stunning
Catalina Island, about 22 miles south-southwest of Los Angeles and the
southernmost island of California's Channel Islands. Accessible only by
passenger ferry, private boat, or helicopter, the oasis of Catalina is a small
and secret serene beauty. The island is just 22 miles long and 8 miles across,
and apart from the two towns, there is only rugged wilderness of majestic
beauty under the stewardship of the Catalina Island Conservancy.

"Fresh and sweet as lemon cream, Catalina presents a rich display
of sunny yellow petals held within a cup of outer petals in minty
green. She brings with her a cheerful disposition, combining beautifully
with flowers in other fruity hues: orange, apricot, raspberry or lime green."
