The philanthropic “Miranda Lambert Rose” will become available to the public in early 2016. The rose itself is described as a Hybrid Tea with large vivid pink blossoms which measure more than five inches in diameter. The bloom is said to have a pleasing “rose and fruit” scent. A snapshot of the flower can be viewed below.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the rose will benefit MuttNation Foundation, the country singer’s non-profit organization which has been tirelessly working to end animal cruelty, neglect, and homelessness since 2007. The charity provides aid to animals across the United States through efforts such as:
- Spay and neuter campaigns
- Medical treatments
- Adoption events, pet transportation, and pet ownership education
- Mill rescues
- Legislative changes
- Service dog training and placement
- Food and supplies for animal shelters
Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation recently distributed $206,000 to shelters in each of the 50 states through its Mutts Across America: 50 States/50 Shelters initiative.
Bravo to Miranda Lambert and Certified Roses Inc. for teaming up and creating a beautiful way to raise funds and awareness for such an important cause!
