Membership Info

WELCOME to the Greater Atlanta Rose Society website!  Thank you for taking the time to view our site.
Our members share a common goal - the enjoyment of roses and spreading that enjoyment to other gardeners. We accomplish this education and promotion through our monthly meetings, special events, rose show, garden tours, newsletter and Consulting Rosarian program.

Enjoy your visit!  We hope you find it interesting and informative.







Everyone is welcome!  January 15, 2019, 7 p.m. in the Orchid Room at the Atlanta Botanical Garden.  Our speaker will be our own Henry Everett, speaking on air layering as a way to propagate roses.  You won't want to miss it!  Hope to see you there!


You will want to attend the Deep South District Mid-Winter Meeting in Gainesville, Florida on January 18-20, 2019!  Lots of fun and vendors to satsify your rose cravings!  Great programs and a CR School on Sunday.  Click here and go to "Upcoming Events" for information and registration form.
