Hello and Welcome!

The Asheville Blue Ridge Rose Society is an educational, non-profit organization dedicated to the cultivation of roses in the Asheville area and South Eastern United States. Members of the Asheville Blue Ridge Rose Society are rose enthusiasts and home gardeners like you who enjoy growing roses and want to expand their knowledge of rose culture. We enjoy a sense of community, camaraderie and the desire to assist each other and the public in general, with the pursuit of rose knowledge.

The Asheville Blue Ridge Rose Society has kept the rose culture alive by its intent and purpose of growing and showing the best of the best of roses for the enjoyment of the citizens of Asheville. Many members also enjoy the thrill of exhibiting their roses in competition with other rose-lovers. Our rosarians take pride in promoting the rose and helping people with their rose problems.

If you are a newbie and have some questions, we have a group of experienced rosarians who would love to help you with every area of rose culture — from planting and routine care, to exhibiting and everything in between.

The Asheville Blue Ridge Rose Society hosts many programs, workshops, and entertaining events throughout the year.

Our society is affiliated with the American Rose Society and we belong to the Carolina District.
