roses photoWelcome to the Reno Rose Society!

We are the oldest rose society in Nevada. Chartered in 1952, and affiliated with the American Rose Society in 1953, the Reno Rose Society has a strong sense of history and tradition.  Steeped in Nevada history, the Reno Rose Society was founded by members of some of Reno's oldest families, many of whom trace their roots to the Comstock and Nevada's early pre-statehood days.

The early Society members were instrumental in establishing the Reno Municipal Rose Garden, which is now next to the California Building in Idlewild Park. Current members of the Society continue to support local public rose gardens, with the creation of a heritage rose garden at the historic Lake Mansion, and scented gardens throughout the area.

The Reno Rose Society, is a nonprofit, for-public-benefit, educational organization, that is dedicated to the cultivation and appreciation of "America's National Flower", and to having fun as we learn about all things roses. Whether one is an experienced rose grower, or new to the hobby, our society has something for everyone who has an interest in roses; from learning how to prune or propagate them... to how to hybridize or exhibit them... from learning how to photograph or paint them... to how to cook or decorate with them. There’s no doubt about it, the ways to enjoy roses are endless!

The Reno Rose Society invites you to participate in its many educational and social functions. This year the Society is proud to associate with the Reno annual art event ARTown, and invite the public to the Reno Rose Society’s third year with Artown. In celebrating 150 years of Nevada Statehood, The Reno Rose Society is hosting “Westward Roses, A Visual Floral Experience July 12, 2014.  For more information on our show see our News page and for our ARTown event see the Reno is ARTown site.
