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.
