Welcome to the home page of the Santa Clara County Rose Society. Santa Clara County encompasses the area from Palo Alto to Gilroy, California (essentially
most of Silicon Valley). We are located in USDA Zone 9.
Next Meeting - Friday, January 10
Program - Pruning Demonstration and Rose Auction
Unsure about how to prune your roses? This is the meeting you've been waiting for. Learn from our ARS Consulting Rosarians as they demonstrate how to prune. Bring your questions, gloves, and rose shears. Free to the public.
After the pruning demonstration, we will hold our 9th Annual Rose Auction. Fill your garden with bargains from this popular event. Bring your already pruned roses and wrap them in a plastic garbage bag so we can keep the floor clean. Be sure to attach a label with the name and type of rose.
When and Where Do We Meet?
Our meetings occur the 2nd Friday of each month (except during July and August) at the O'Connor Medical Office Building, 2101 Forest Avenue, San Jose - right next
to O'Connor Hospital. Doors open at 7:00 PM, program starts at 7:30 PM. Directions
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.
