A Great Rose
John Paul the Great now has a rose bred in his honor, the John Paul II rose. It is cultivated at the Vatican.
Says one vendor,
"One of the finest white hybrid teas of all time, the Pope John Paul II rose produces luminous, large white blossoms that boast up to 50 petals... luscious fragrance, robust growth and outstanding bloom form. A vigorous New Generation rose."
I thought the last line was (unintentionally) appropriate.
10% of net sales go to causes that were near to the Pontiff's heart.
