Muriel and Bill Humenick have grown and sold roses from their four acre home in El Dorado, California, for almost 30 years. Tucked away in the heart of gold country, the beautiful property has been extensively planted with roses, camelias, clematis, shrubs, trees, bulbs and is a veritable botanical garden. Muriel and Bill were founders of the Sierra Foothills Rose Society. Muriel has been an accredited American Rose Society judge and a consulting rosarian since 1962.
