Between the central Cotopaxi and Tungurahua volcanoes 124 miles south of Quito lies Nevado Roses—the antithesis of your grandmother’s flower garden. More than 3 million rosebushes bloom in tidy rows, wafting their heady fragrance into the air. Roberto Nevado, who has co-owned this 90-acre plot since 1996 with his son John, will walk you through the harvest, pointing out varieties that grow improbably tall at this altitude (9,000 feet). Handpick your favorites—a fiery Lina or an organic Flaming Pale Pink—and the bouquet will be waiting for you when you return home.
