Classification of Roses

Thursday, October 19  

6:30pm refreshments; 7:00pm program

Presented by Jan Burnham from the Marin County Rose Society. Come with notebook in-hand and join us for a "Roses 101" lecture on the different classifications/types of roses. We'll explain the differences (and similarities) between three (3) main groupings: Species (wild roses); Old Garden Roses (classes in existence before 1867); and Modern Roses (classes in existence after 1867 such as a Hybrid Tea, Floribunda, Grandiflora, and Climbers.

Our Rosarians can help. We have several Master Rosarians (a rose expert trained to speak and teach about roses) in our membership who can help you with rose care and maintenance. From what variety to plant where, to pruning schedules, to best fertilizers and composts...our Rosarians are trained to help you with it all.
