When Hurricane Katrina swept across the Gulf Coast, Peggy Martin’s home and her famous rose garden were destroyed and left under 20 feet of water. Later, in the mud and debris, Peggy spotted green on one old-fashioned rose. It was the only rose in her garden to survive and the only one that she had never been able to identify even though she had consulted many rosarians. It didn't have a name. This rose became known as the Katrina Rose, and it brought hope to all for miles around. Since then, the beautiful pink rose has been officially named the Peggy Martin Rose.
The Rose Without a Name is a children's book based on the story of the Peggy Martin Rose.
