Program - Highlights from the
2015 World Federation of Rose Societies Conference

In 25 May - 01 June 2015, the World Federation of Rose Societies (WFRS) held their 17th World Convention of Rose Societies at Lyon, France.
We are honored to have former American Rose Society President, Jolene Adams, present a lively talk about attending the conference.

Jolene fell in love with roses as a teenager and hasn't gotten over it. Jolene grows over 150 roses of all types -
Climbers, OGRs, Minis and Minifloras, Hybrid Teas, Grandifloras, Floribundas, Polyanthas, Austins, Romanticas, Modern and Classic Shrubs.
She lectures widely on computing issues, general gardening topics, and on roses. Jolene became ARS President at the Fall 2012 ARS Convention.
Free to the public.

About the SCCRS

The Santa Clara County Rose Society (SCCRS) was founded in 1927, and is affiliated with the American Rose Society (ARS).
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.
