Call me Miss Piggy...

Miss Piggy- and Kermit- Look Great together!

The Flower Stand- By J Schwanke

Flower Names are a funny thing… Everyone is looking for a great name! There’s no denying that FREEDOM was an excellent choice for a Red Rose… or that Polar Star or Avalanche are both, very descriptive monikers for a White Roses…

So I wanted to introduce you to “MISS PIGGY” – an amazing Peach, Pink Overtone Rose from Eufloria…

Kelly and I first saw this rose as an  “Experimental Introductions” in Amsterdam at LEX when we visited them a few years back…with Chad from Eufloria… At that time… this rose only had a number … but no name…

Now Lex is a pretty crafty guy… he’s famous for the Avalanche series… and many other successful varieties… and the name is something that helps market and promote his roses…  Lex had an idea… he knew that one of the most successful flowers in the market was the “KERMIT” Pompon… a Green Button… and he felt that much of that success could be related to the popularity of the famous Muppet… as well as the flowers shape and color…

So Lex decided on “Miss Piggy”… to play off the name of Kermit’s famous Muppet Romantic Muse…

This is one of my Favorite Eufloria Roses… they have perfected growing “Miss Piggy” in California… and this rose has Amazing Color… Great Fragrance and is Virtually Thornless…. all great properties for roses…

Popular for weddings because of their color… they grow a lot of “Miss Piggy” and the rose is in high demand… but I often wonder if the Wedding Planners are telling their customers.. that the Rose is named “Miss Piggy”???  After all… she’s pretty moody and opinionated… hehehe!
