This Roses in Review (RIR) marks the 91st time that the members of the American Rose Society have evaluated new rose introductions. The ultimate value of this procedure is realized only when we have a broad base of participation. We need your contribution, whether you grow only one plant of one variety on the list or many of them. We need input from “garden” rosarians as well as exhibitors, and from new rosarians as well as seasoned veterans. We also welcome reports from those who are not yet ARS members, so please pass along this website address to your rose-growing friends. The complete results of this survey will be included in the January/February, 2017, issue of American Rose, and will help determine the ratings in the ARS Handbook for Selecting Roses. For these results to be meaningful, we need everyone to participate So, please – take a few minutes of your time to evaluate your new roses. Only evaluate roses you grow from the cultivar list.
Reviews must be submitted by September 26, 2016. Your reports will be automatically sent to your District coordinator.
