Ping Lim: A Life Dedicated to Roses
Today we are joined by Rose Hybridizer Ping Lim. As many of you know, Ping is the Hybridizer of the very popular Easy Elegance Collection of roses and a new line of roses called True Bloom.
Ping has devoted his life to researching and developing roses, and has created hundreds of varieties. Listen in as Ping shares his story.
Ping has devoted his life to researching and developing roses, and has created hundreds of varieties renowned for their color, fragrance, hardiness, and disease resistance. He believes that a good rose is one that brings beauty, joy, and health to the people and the planet.
His mission seems simple: Design stunning roses that can be grown by anyone, any-where, without any harmful chemicals. But this goal is more complicated than it sounds. Ping has exceptionally high standards for quality, and often submits his varieties to more than ten years of field trials before releasing them to market. His varieties have been tested all over the United States—from the hottest deserts of Arizona to the rainiest valleys in Oregon, and spanning the bitter winters of Boston to the humid summers of Florida—and in numerous countries, including China, Japan, Taiwan, France, Italy, Germany, Russia, and the United Kingdom.
