That which we call a rose / by any other name would smell as sweet. (William Shakespeare). Roses have symbolized love and beauty for centuries. The fragrance from roses is unmatched and oil from roses is used to make perfumes around the world. From the rose gardens of the Smithsonian Institution comes Roses 2012. There are over 100 species of roses; some of the most beautiful are featured in this lovely wall calendar. Spacious grids include international holidays and moon phases. There are sections at the back of the calendar to record emergency contact information and birthdays/anniversaries and a full-page 3-year at-a-glance. Earth friendly, printed with soya-based inks on FSC certified paper.
The Kathrine Dulin Folger Rose Garden was designed and installed by Smithsonian Gardens’ staff and dedicated in the fall of 1998. It is a visual centerpiece in front of the Arts and Industries Building located along the National Mall in Washington, D.C. From mid-May through November, roses grace the garden with color and fragrance. This garden provides an engaging space for visitors on their journey around the Smithsonian museums.
