June 19 column: Rose Show

Rose Lady of Shalott, rose show

If there were a popularity contest for everyone’s favorite flower, the rose would win hands down, don’t you think? You just can’t beat roses for their beauty, color and fragrance. Next Sunday (June 26), you’ll have the opportunity to view all sorts of different roses at the Spokane Rose Society’s 69th annual Rose Show.

Here’s a link to my column about it in today’s edition of The Spokesman-Review: Discover variety, learn about care at Rose Show.

The Rose Show will be held at Northland Rosarium, 9405 S. Williams Lane, in southwest Spokane County. Admission is free.

Here’s the schedule of events:

8 to 10 a.m. – Rose exhibitor prep

10 a.m. to noon – Judging

Noon to 4 p.m. – Visitor viewing

If you aren’t familiar with the location of Northland Rosarium, view their website where you’ll find directions, contact information, as well as information on the roses they have available for sale. They have beautiful display gardens to stroll through. In addition to being an enjoyable pursuit, you’ll see how many different rose cultivars grow. You just might be bringing some new ones home to your garden!
