Welcome to the Baton Rouge Rose Society Website

The Baton Rouge Rose Society is a non-profit organization, affiliated with the American Rose Society (ARS), and sponsor of the Botanical Rose Garden at Independence Park. Our society participates in many rose events including local and national rose shows, garden tours, pruning demonstrations, and rose sales.  We partner with the Botanic Garden, BREC, LSU, the ARS and Burden to educate the public about the joys of rose growing.

 

The Baton Rouge Rose Society normally meets on the second Wednesday of each month, except July and August, at the Independence Park Garden Center, at 7:00 P.M.  We are anxious to share our interest in growing and exhibiting our national flower with everyone.  See the meeting schedule at left for meeting details.


If you are interested in learning more about growing roses in this area, please come to one of our meetings or check with this web site.  If you have a question about growing roses, feel free to contact one of the consulting rosarians listed on the Contact Us page or simply send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you.
