A rose bush that started as a cutting today cascades over a six-foot high fence and spreads out in all directions. Judy Massengale said her grandmother Lulu Stone of Turtletown had the yellow rose in her yard. When she moved from Polk County, Massengale took a cutting to plant at her home in Hope Acres. After several years in Hope Acres, Massengale moved to Wilson Drive, where she took another cutting. In February of 2003, Massengale moved to the Mulberry Subdivision. She again took a cutting of her grandmother’s old yellow rose. The rose has a fragrant scent that is pleasing to stand near.
