William Radler grew up in Wisconsin and bought his first rose at age 9. He joins us to talk about his early rose growing experience and how through those relationships, made a commitment to create low maintenance roses. Hear how the Knock Out rose got its name and about his continuing work to create low maintenance roses we all can enjoy.
Mr. Radler holds a degree in landscape architecture and spent 23 years in the industry, most notably 13 years as Director of Boerner Botanical Gardens. With the success of the Knock Out Rose, Will now is a full time rose hybridizer and devotes his time to philanthropic endeavors.
