Clara Ford Rose Garden to be Installed
April 29, 2013
Clara Bryant Ford, the wife of Henry Ford for 59 years, loved roses. Fair Lane, the Ford’s Michigan estate, had more than 350 varieties of roses and 10,000 rose plants in their five acre garden.
In honor of Clara’s birthday and Henry’s 150th coming up on July 30th, Edison Ford horticulture staff will be installing a small historic rose garden at The Mangoes, the Ford’s winter estate.
The unveiling of the garden will be held in July in honor of Henry Ford’s 150th birthday. Funding for the Clara Ford Rose Garden, provided by Peggy Campbell, great-niece of Clara Bryant Ford.
