Previously the Rose Show has been open on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. This year, the show will be open on Saturday afternoon only, so please plan to attend on Saturday from 1-5 p.m.

The show will feature hundreds of rose blooms including the large flowered hybrid teas that everyone loves, as well as new varieties, fragrant old roses and miniature roses.

A special display will contain award winners from each class, including Queen of the Show. This wide variety of roses offers an excellent opportunity to select favorites to grow in your own garden.

Society members will be present to advise on best practices for growing roses, membership in the Rowan Rose society, normally $20, will be available at half price.

In addition to displays of individual roses, a large section will be devoted to a variety of beautiful flower arrangements emphasizing the use of roses.

All area rose growers are welcome to enter roses between 6:30-10 a.m. on Saturday.

At the close of the show on Saturday, show roses will be sold with proceeds to benefit the American Rose Society. For more information, call Clyde Harriss, 704-633-7024.
