Here is your source for selecting and growing showcase roses in your Florida rose garden. Whether you are an experienced rose grower or new to this fascinating hobby, in these pages you will discover tips and tested cultural information to help you grow great roses in Central Florida. While our focus is on local growing conditions, there are articles and links covering general rose growing techniques as well. As this web site evolves there will be new information added on a regular basis, so check back frequently.

The Central Florida Rose Society meets from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. on the first Thursday of each month, (except for July and August) in the "Rose Room" of Harry P. Leu Botanical Gardens, 1920 N. Forest Avenue, Orlando, FL 32803. Come and enjoy good fellowship, lots of rose talk, and refreshments. Each monthly meeting features a knowledgeable rosarian speaking on all aspects of rose growing. If there is something specific that you want to learn, we have a number of consulting rosarians who can answer your questions. Visitors are always welcome. Come see what we are all about … and feel free to bring a friend.
