Thanks for continuing to make this a legendary Rose Society – and happy holidays from your Board, Committee Members, and Staff.
The Tacoma Rose Society is about more than just roses. It’s a living, breathing organization that’s dedicated to educating about the most beautiful flower in the garden. This dedication and support from each of you is what has kept it strong through 2 world wars – and now a pandemic – since 1911. And it shows.
You can also enjoy the beauty of rose color and texture by growing them in patio containers. All types of roses can be grown in containers – it’s very simple provided you follow a few simple guidelines.
