In the late 1970s, we had an official rose named Delta Gamma, as mentioned in the 2021 summer ANCHORA story, we can’t find any still living — so it is time to register a new name and heartier rose to be our official cream-colored rose as a way to commemorate our 150-year celebration! It is an antique-style garden rose that will begin DG pink and turn cream rose as it blooms. The Delta Gamma Heritage Rose will be available for purchase in the coming years, once they are grafted and can multiply. Several hundred will be for sale before 2024, and thousands will be available to purchase from the Texas rose grower from 2024 and beyond. The sisterhood voted on the name via social media in 2021.
