Floral designers from around the world are invited to share their best work using garden roses in the Alexandra Farms Garden Rose Design Contest.
Full and fragrant, with ruffled petals and delicate to vibrant hues, fresh-cut garden roses are a favorite with designers everywhere. In their fourth annual competition, Alexandra Farms invites design entries that feature garden roses in the categories of Wedding Work and Everyday Design.
