The motion picture Sully hit theaters this month. It's the tale of Captain Sullenberger and crew and how they crash landed US Airways flight 1549 into the Hudson River saving all 155 passengers on board. It's a story that's come to be known as "The Miracle on the Hudson." Our guest on today's show is Robert Neil Rippetoe, he's the hybridizer that created the rose named to commemorate this heroic event and he's here to talk with us about this rose, his hybridizing program and also offers some great tips for new rose growers.
On this broadcast of the Rose Garden Check Up, Dr. McCasland talks about the impact that fragrance has on our memories and shares with us the primary reason he grows roses and encourages us all to put our nose in a rose every chance we get.
