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.
At our September meeting Wayne and Lyndy Myers will show us highlights of their trip last May to Italy where they visited Italian rose gardens. Traveling for eight days with a group of 20 other U.S. rose lovers, they visited beautiful rose gardens near Rome and in the Italian regions of Tuscany and Umbria.
