Welcome to the Rose Society of Tucson!

The Rose Society was founded February 1, 1960. We currently have over 100 members. The purpose of the Rose Society is to share interest and knowledge in growing stunning roses.

We currently have 12 Consulting Rosarians in our membership, 6 American Rose Society (ARS) Horticulture Judges and 3 Arrangement Judges. Whether you just want to learn to grow the roses you currently have, or you want to exhibit, we have members who will help you to achieve your goals.

Our source of information and knowledge is not limited to the Rose Society of Tucson. We are an affiliate of the American Rose Society which is the largest horticultural society in the nation.

Benefits of membership: Membership for the Rose Society of Tucson is $20.00 per year. Our members receive the Society’s award-winning newsletter, the Thrip Hater, 10 times a year, and are eligible for shared purchases of inexpensive and hard-to-find roses. The Thrip Hater provides interesting and educational articles and keeps you notified of current events.

Meetings: Everyone is welcome to our meetings, no charge. Our guest speakers and programs aim to assist everyone in learning how to grow and enjoy the the stunning beauty of roses. We meet the first Tuesday of each month at Tucson Botanical Gardens, 2150 N. Alvernon Way at 6:30 p.m (social time). We do not meet in July and August. Social time provides guests and prospective members an opportunity to chat with members, ask questions and exchange tips on growing roses.

Events: We have a rose show each year in April. We offer a rose pruning demonstration at our January meeting. Our members host garden tours periodically to share landscaping ideas and provide new and different ideas for growing roses in the desert.
