Next Meeting - Friday, April 10
Program - Rose Botany

What makes a rose tick? At the NCNH District Conference, Jolene Adams gave a very lively talk about rose botany.
Let me assure you that this is not your usual boring talk about botany. When Jolene speaks nothing is ever boring.

Fortunately, we filmed her talk and will present it.

About the SCCRS

The Santa Clara County Rose Society (SCCRS) was founded in 1927, and is affiliated with the American Rose Society (ARS).
There are currently approximately 200 members in the SCCRS.
Our mission is to encourage interest in the rose, to promote its cultivation,
and to disseminate information on its culture among any interested people.
Although this home page is mostly intended for residents of Santa Clara County,
we hope that people outside the county will find it useful too.
