WHAT IS A ROSARIAN?


There are gardeners and there are rosarians.  Rosarians are gardeners that love and know roses.  They grow hybrid teas, grandifloras, floribundas, miniatures and minifloras, shrubs and old garden roses.  They shop and buy roses from catalogs around the country and local garden centers (cost no object).  They visit rose gardens, large and small, public and private, near and far.  They join rose societies, attend meetings, conventions and rose shows.  They become judges and consulting rosarians.  

Rosarians buy books and magazines dedicated to rose care and they can’t get enough of them.  They take photos and slides of roses.  They buy rose pictures and adorn their homes with rose arts.  They have curtains with roses and upholster their chairs with fabric with rose designs.  They make and buy rose jewelry.  They make tea, jelly and potpourri.  Some of them even eat rose hips.  They dry roses, paint them and give them to others.  They write rose poems and sing rose songs.  They name events like “The Rose Bowl” and “The Rose Parade”.  They have even made the rose our national flower.  They name their children and pets with rose names (Rose, Rosemary, Rosemarie, Roseanne).

Rosarians plant, they prune, they feed, they protect and they nurture their roses like their children.  They wait, they watch and finally they rejoice at the very first bud of the season.  They love to share their roses and their gardens with everyone.  They are the most friendly and nicest group of people you’ll meet.

Roses are easy plants to grow contrary to popular belief. Why do you think Roses have been around for millions of years?  All they need are food, water and sunlight.  Just like you and me.
