1. The M.S. Hershey Rose Marker
Inscription. In 1940, the American Rose Society honored Milton Hershey by naming a rose after him. Over the years, the number of these rose bushes has steadily declined to only a few remaining at the Gardens.

This year, to commemorate Hershey Gardens’ 75th anniversary, we have propagated this special rose to restore its original abundance.

Enjoy these young, emerging M.S. Hershey Roses. Next year, dozens of vibrant M.S. Hershey Roses will once again thrive at Hershey Gardens.
