Sven, Ole, and Lena on Sale at the Arboretum

The University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum is holding it’s Auxiliary Spring Plant Sale this weekend. Hours are 9am-3pm Saturday, May 10, and 10am-3pm Sunday, May 11.

On sale for the first time ever will be three new rose bush varieties named after the Scandinavian caricatures Sven, Ole, and Lena.

According to [Arboretum Director of Operations Peter] Moe, Ole is a pale pink rose and Lena is a frilly pink and white flower, while Sven features fragrant mauve-to-violet-colored blooms.

That sounds much more enjoyable than an actual Sven and Ole joke.
