About a month ago I announced the 6th annual Rose Day and its new format.
Held in collaboration with the California Center for Urban Horticulture (CCUH), this year's rose day is truly an 'Eyeconic' weekend complete with talks on rose maintenance, tours of the Foundation Plant Services rose collection, and a plant sale on both Saturday and Sunday, May 4th and 5th, 10 am - 4 pm.
I shared the agenda last time (it's attached below as well), but I recently received the catalog for the rose sale and wanted to share that with you.
Here are the varieties available this year:
I've attached a copy below as a PDF for easy download.
There is a limited supply of each variety, so if you see something you like make sure you get here early on May 4th. All rose bushes have been donated and the proceeds from the sale will support educational programs at the CCUH.
The rose sale and rose talks will take place behind the Foundation Plant Services main office, just off Straloch Rd. You can get directions to the building from Google maps.
We look forward to seeing you!
Remember, the first 250 attendees receive a free mini floribunda rose!
