Dr. Griffith Buck Roses

Dr. Griffith Buck developed many varieties of hardy, fragrant, and beautiful roses during his time at Iowa State University. As a respected member of the rose growers association and the rose growers community Dr. Buck was not only renowned for developing varieties such as "Carefree Beauty" and "Pearlie Mae" but also for his dedication to the industry.

The Buck roses are the proprietary property of the Iowa State University Research Foundation and in recognition of Dr. Buck's accomplishment, a collection of these roses is being established at the new Reiman Gardens in Ames, Iowa.
