Fall in the Historic Rose Garden

Fall is a great time to visit the Historic Rose Garden.  Not only will the repeat roses bloom with deeper color and more fragrant blooms, but hips and brightly colored foliage will appear with cool evenings. 

Remember that volunteers work on Tuesday and Saturday mornings and will be glad to show visitors the garden. 

There will also be two fall tours:

  • October Encores on October 13
  • Fall Color in the Rose Garden on November 17

Thanks to all who attended the Preservation Commission Meeting on April 13.

Remembering Barbara

It was fitting to celebrate Barbara Oliva's life in the Historic Rose Garden that she worked in for so long and also fitting the roses received a much needed drizzling rain on her day.

Historic Rose Garden

The Historic Rose Garden includes more than 500 old garden roses from a variety of sources and sites.  The collection includes some unique roses, not found anywhere else.  Click here for a  catalog of roses in the garden.

Cemetery Musk Seedling

We're propagating this rose. A unique seedling that appeared in our garden about ten years ago, it continuously bears clusters of single flowers with a strong spicy fragrance.  Without pruning, it's grown into a fountain-shaped shrub about five feet tall and six feet wide.  It can be kept smaller with moderate pruning and shaping.  A great landscape rose!
