Utah Rose Society Meeting @ Sugar House Garden Center
May 17 @ 6:30 pm

Companion planting using perennials

Presentation by Shoshana Ebertz on using perennial plants as companions for rose gardens. Last year we had a presentation on companion planting that focused mostly on using annual plants and flowers. Shoshana is a fan of perennials as they don’t have to be planted every year. She will show photos of beautiful options for enhancing your rose garden.

Copies of the Rose Show schedule will be available at this meeting so that you can plan your entries for the show.
