JANUARY IS PRUNING TIME!
Rose Garden volunteers began pruning season this year by hosting a day-long pruning clinic by Stephen Scanniello (President of the Heritage Rose Foundation) on January 12 at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Now it's time for us to get the job done.
We will hold our Pruning Party on January 19 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. we will have coffee and water and Anita plans to bring a pot of chili. Please bring anything else you prefer for lunch. Several eateries are within walking distance.

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!
