Our Story

Our Story

Paul Zimmerman Roses was started around one simple message. Roses are nothing more than flowering shrubs and that’s how you should use, and treat them. Through writing, lectures, workshops and consulting on both care and design, our goal is to make roses less intimidating. I hope you enjoy our website.
