It’s a rosey time in Jackson

By From page B7 | September 21, 2012

The Mother Lode Rose Society is showcasing its 23rd annual Rose and Arrangement Show on Saturday, Sept. 22 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Amador Senior Center, 229 New York Ranch Road in Jackson.

The public is invited to take a trip into the international world of cut roses and arrangements.

“Going Global with Roses” will feature lovely long stem roses, a single rose in a frame, a rose in a bowl, specimens of floribundas, sprays of lovely climbers, the popular miniatures and minifloras as well as a chance to judge the most fragrant rose.

Enjoy a sojourn into the world of roses while admiring the unique arrangements with interesting titles like “Mexican Market Day,” a traditional line mass design.

Visit “England’s Changing of the Guard,” a modern synergistic design using three or more containers creating a unified whole.

The section of artistic design includes titles such as “Italy’s Tuscan Vineyards,” “India Land of Mystics” and many more exciting designs.

Are you planning a new rose garden or maybe replacing the ones who aren’t productive?

Visitors to the Rose and Arrangement Show will see these lovely blooms in their true form.

Consulting rosarians will be present to answer any questions or concerns you may have about the culture of roses, where to plant, types of soil, and which roses will do best in your zone.

While visiting the rose show, take time to visit the public rose garden at the senior center. It is a show in itself.

The show is free to the public.
