About Us

We are a group of gardeners who enjoy growing and learning about roses.

   Some of us like to grow exhibition roses and participate in local rose shows.

      Some of us are just learning how to successfully grow roses in our landscapes.

       Some of us are enthralled by miniature roses while others marvel at the hybrid tea.

         Some of us are collectors while some have only a few plants. 
But most importantly we are a group who have come together to encourage each other in our hobby.

Consulting Rosarians (CR) are volunteers ready to answer any question about growing roses. Master Rosarians are CR who have been CR for 10 or more years. All are certified by the American Rose Society.

QUESTION: Do you have to be a member of the Dallas Rose Society or the American Rose Society to ask a question?

ANSWER: No! CR and Master Rosarians answer questions from the public, too. CR are a public outreach of the American Rose Society and the Dallas Rose Society. We hope our knowledge of roses will encourage you and just maybe entice you to join our group.
