Casa del Mar is home to a world-famous cotton plant and a beautiful orchid garden and a month ago Casa del Mar staff planted its newest addition — a rose garden. The green-thumbed staff has planted climbing rose bushes around four archways, upward of 25 rose bushes and has added rock formations and a fountain leading to the orchid garden. The roses have been growing well in this climate; some have already started blooming.
