“Old Garden Roses”
Do you like the colors and fragrance of the Austin roses? Those characteristics came from old garden roses. Old garden roses have the benefit of being very hardy and requiring less care than others.
Our February speakers, Carole Smuda and Norma Booty, will introduce us to the wide variety of colors, shapes and sizes of Old Garden Roses. Both Norma and Carole are ARS-certified Master Consulting Rosarians, Horticulture Judges and Arrangement Judges, with a combined knowledge of exhibiting and growing roses spanning more than 70 years.
