The Finest Roses
As a founder and president of the American Rose Society, roses always drew McFarland’s attention, as in this image of the rose 'Merrouw G. A. Van Rossem' at McFarland's Breeze Hill estate in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, circa 1930. "I can also tell you that some of the finest roses are the thorniest," he once said.
