A rose sapling, propagated from a bush found at Camp Amache, grows at the Denver Botanic Gardens. April 26, 2023.

Clippings from a rose bush at Colorado's Camp Amache are now in the ground at Denver Botanic Gardens. Buds and blooms could come soon. Kelly Takaya King, whose father was incarcerated at Amache, visited the Gardens' Steppe Collection all the way from Maui. We were there for her moving meeting with horticulurist Mike Bone.
