Miniature & Mini-flora Roses with Elena Williams

Elena has been growing miniature roses since 1998. A few years later the mini-flora class was formed and that was a natural fit for her collection of roses. Arranging roses and Horticulture exhibiting and judging are her favorite hobbies, but she also enjoys photographing roses. In 2011 Elena moved 60 mini and mini-flora roses from Minnesota to Western Washington, where many of those roses thriving in the maritime climate. Elena currently serves as the co-chair of consulting rosarians for the Pacific Northwest District of the Amerian Rose Society alongside John Moe.
