Dallas Area Historical Rose Society
The Dallas Area Historical Rose Society picnic at Peter Schaar's house has been canceled due to the rain and flooding in his garden.
This is very unfortunate, but we really cannot complain about the rain after such a severe drought.
We will have our plant exchange at the regular may meeting on May 26 at 7 p.m. at the Farmers Branch Recreation Center, 14050 Heartside Place.
The program will be "Beautiful Flavors, Beautiful Plates" cooking and/or eating flowers and herbs and the presentation of the dishes.
The speaker will be Barbara Gollman of the Dallas County Master Gardeners Speaker's Bureau.
All are welcome to come and participate. Rules are: maximum of five roses and/or five other companion plants for the plant exchange. — Kathy Harris.
The Yellow Rose features articles by noted rosarians Claude Graves and Graham Stuart Thomas. The Yellow Rose is edited by Betty Vickers. For more information about our organization please write to us or attend one of our meetings.
The Dallas Area Historical Rose Society is dedicated to the cultivation of old garden (antique) roses in the home landscape. Our members appreciate the fragrance, beauty, and strength of antique roses.
One of the goals of the society is to preserve varieties of antique roses that otherwise would have been lost to the shadows of time. Members identify old "found" varieties to assure their place in history.
Meetings and Guest Speakers
The Dallas Area Historical Rose Society meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month except December and hosts guest speakers. Our meetings include fellowship, door prizes, and plant and cutting exchanges.
A fellowship period begins at 6:30 p.m. The meeting and program starts at 7 p.m.
Each spring our members open their gardens to antique rose enthusiasts. Our members conduct rose shows, plant sales, and educate the public on the value and joys of antique heritage roses. The society is constantly recruiting new members.
The Dallas Area Historical Rose Society newsletter is The Yellow Rose. It is published 10 times a year. Each issue of the newsletter includes articles on the cultivation of roses, news of the members, and news of the world of antique and heritage roses.
