The Jacksonville Rose Society is a non-profit organization, established in 1954. Located in Jacksonville, Florida, we are an affiliate of The American Rose Society
As stated in our charter, the purpose of our organization is to encourage the scientific study of plants and their culture, specifically roses, both old and modern, and to encourage the planting of roses for civic beautification.
Meetings are held at 7:00 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month except for January and July at the Garden Club of Jacksonville, 1005 Riverside Avenue. Our next meeting will be on Sunday, May 5, 2013. This is our annual picnic (see information below). Our next regular meeting at the Garden Club will be on Tuesday, June 4, 2013.
