2023 ARS National Rose Convention
2023 ARS National Rose Convention: Hello Rose Lovers!
May 5-7, 2023 | The American Rose Center, Shreveport, LA
It was time to celebrate this “Crown Jewel” of the American Rose Society. Most of us have never been there but after seeing the great article and photos by Marilyn Wellan in the March/April issue of the American Rose, didn't it make your heart desire to see the garden? This garden is our heritage and our home and now it has been transformed by the Great Garden Restoration into a stellar destination for all rose lovers.
