Next Meeting:  Tuesday, April 6  
Gerry Mahoney On France’s Malmaison Garden

Our next Go To Meeting program will be given by Gerry Mahoney from the Rose Society of Glendale.

Her presentation will be on the history of the famous rose garden at Malmaison in France.

This was the garden of Empress Josephine, wife of Napoleon Bonaparte, at the height of the French Revolution.

Josephine helped establish the beginnings of the modern roses that we enjoy today by crossing the European strains with the newly imported roses from China. This brought about new plants that could have repeat blooms throughout the growing season and new color combinations never before seen in Europe. A revolution of roses!

Listen to this fascinating story about the birth of the modern rose.
