2019 Biltmore International Rose Trial Results

The Rose Chat Podcast crew had a blast at this year's rose trial event at the magnificent Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina.    

Rose Chat creator Chris VanCleave always says, “Good things happen when people and roses come together” and this weekend was no exception.

The Biltmore International Rose Trails brings the nation’s top rose breeders and growers together as a culmination of three years’ worth of trials that will ultimately determine some of the best roses produced in the world. 

Thanks to Paul Zimmerman, curator of the trial and Parker Andes, Director of Horticulture at Biltmore Estate for their hard work and dedication to the cause of sustainability.
