Utah Rose Society

The Utah Rose Society is the place to learn about all things related to the “Queen of Flowers.” Our members grow and care for over 1,500 roses in their personal gardens. We have the combined rose growing experience of over 100 years in our membership. “This is the place” to learn how to take care of your roses. We cover all topics on rose care from how to prune, fertilizing your roses, and how to take care of them in an environmentally responsible way. Roses aren’t hard to grow; you just need guidance, and we offer it in abundance! Eleven months a year we put out an informative newsletter that covers wide-ranging topics on roses, rose books, upcoming events, and other information valuable to you as you learn about roses and their care.

We also sponsor an annual rose show each June were you can see the most beautiful roses of all types, colors, and fragrances. Never exhibited before? We help you with hands-on classes on arrangements, rose grooming, and more. We are a fun and welcoming bunch of people who have been smitten by the history, beauty, and lore surrounding our national flower. We are affiliated with the American Rose Society and thus have available resources that a national perspective provides.

We meet at the Sugar House Garden Center on the third Thursday of each month except January. We have an annual Christmas dinner in December and periodic pot luck suppers. During the summer months we meet in various members’ gardens to share food, fun and fellowship. We hope to see you at one of our meetings!
