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.
Fall Color in the Rose Garden tour on November 17 has been cancelled due to poor air quality. Hopefully, visitors can enjoy the garden after next week's rains wash away the smoke. Apologies. Stay safe.

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.

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!
