The Miniver Rose

A rose enthusiast, writing in a message forum about roses, has this to say: "According to Sterling Macoboy's The Ultimate Rose Book, the rose Mrs. Miniver was named by Jackson & Perkins after the very popular movie character. The same source suggests that it is hard to find."

As the product of the MGM film, much has since been written about the "Miniver Rose". The prize-winning bloom has fed the imagination of growers and artists alike.

This is one particular artist's vision - painted by Irina Ohl and called Mrs. Miniver's Roses. Click on this link to visit her site.

Irina is a fourth generation artist. Her mother, known as "Erna", was one of Isadora Duncan’s original dancers. After retiring, Erna began painting her unique collages of birds.

Irina’s German grandmother was a miniaturist artist and her great grandmother, a designer for the Court in Bavaria. Irina’s father, George Nebolsine, painted and exhibited oils and watercolors at the Art Student League in New York.
