Celebrity Rose #6 :: Dale Chihuly

The Dale Chihuly Rose
I love glass. I think it has to do with the fact that when I was young my family went to the closest theme park - Silver Dollar City - several times every summer. Silver Dollar City's 'theme' is the time period of the late 1800's and one of the main exhibits was the glass blowing and cutting center.

I loved watching the artists create art from glass and the attached gift shop was full of their work.

Dale Chihuly is an amazing glass artist and I encourage you to check out his website for some examples, especially his gardens of glass. His work is amazing.

Rose description from Growquest:

In naming a rose to honor America’s famous glass artisan, Dale Chihuly, it had to have impeccable style and an ever-changing array of flashy colors. This rose has it all! As the sun hits the opening petals, they blush from subtly-striped apricot yellow to dazzling orange and deep red...producing a remarkable display against the deep dark green leaves and mahogany-red new growth.

  1. If you love glass you should come to our area. Corning, NY is home to Corning Glass and the Corning Glass Museum. Our downtown has some beautiful glass stores as well.
