Charlotte Rose Society


The Charlotte Rose Society was founded in 1953 to serve the Charlotte Metropolitan area. Its members provide education, information and assistance in support of the American National Flower the rose.


Quarterly Newsletter:

The Charlotte Rosebud, a newsletter dedicated to helpful information on rose culture, news of the Carolina District Societies and the American Rose Society, information on new roses, sources for roses, detailed experiences of early growers, etc.


ARS Consulting Rosarians:

Free consulting on rose-related subjects by our approximately twenty Consulting Rosarians living throughout the greater Charlotte metro area.


Annual Membership Directory:

Published yearly, listing all current Charlotte Rose Society members, their addresses, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses, when available.


Annual Garden Tour:

Several members of the Charlotte Rose Society open their gardens to an organized free tour each May.


Annual Pruning Seminar:

In late February, several Consulting Rosarians conduct a spring pruning demonstration and clinic at the McGill Rose Garden on Davidson, near Uptown.


Annual Rose Show:

Participation is open to all rose growers. The Show is conducted each October and held in a readily accessible public location such as a metropolitan mall with awards, certificates and ribbons presented. The free Show is presented for the public to enjoy.


Annual Society-Wide Purchase

The Charlotte Rose Society arranges an annual group purchase of essential rose foods, desirable sprays and growth enhancing materials at very attractive prices. This highly discounted group purchasing activity saves many members amounts equal to or in excess of their annual Society membership.


We solicit your attendance at any of our meetings. We believe that we can not only help the novice growers get better established, but can continue to challenge the experienced grower to improve upon their experience. Click here for the membership application.
