Did You Know?


'Violet Carson' is the name of a hybrid rose introduced in 1963 and named after the actress. It can be seen in V for Vendetta (2005) although in the film its name is changed to a 'Scarlett Carson', which is not a real flower. It is a yellow-blend Floribunda rose, created by crossing the 'Mme Leon Cuny' with the 'Spartan.'. See more »
