A Rose by Any Name at All

April 01, 1999|ROBERT SMAUS

Now you can name a rose after a friend or loved one--even your city or company. I don't mean you simply start calling a rose Joe or Jane; you can actually name a new introduction from Jackson & Perkins, one of this country's largest rose producers.

You can choose any name that is not already registered for roses.

"The only limitation is good taste," according Jackson & Perkins. All you have to do is come up with $75,000. From then on, the new introduction will be known as "Tom Smith" or "Tom's Tuna Cannery," or whatever you choose.

For their money, buyers will also get two nights in a five-star Los Angeles Hotel, gourmet meals while in the area, and a trip via chauffeured limousine to the Jackson & Perkins research facility near Camarillo, where they choose their personal rose. The buyer of the name will also get 300 of the new flowers and a case of Dom Perignon champagne.

For more information, call Jackson & Perkins at (888) 476-7673.
