Rose Show At Church Of The Ascension June 25-26

‘Campfire’, a yellow blend Canadian-bred Shrub rose, is extremely winter-hardy and disease-resistant and is a multi-colored focal point in the garden.

The Forest City Rose Society will hold its Spring Rose Show on Saturday, June 25 and Sunday, June 26 in Strom Hall at Church of the Ascension, 13216 Detroit Avenue in Lakewood. The show includes 47 classes for horticultural specimens of all types of modern and old garden roses as well as eight classes for arrangements in traditional, modern and East Asian designs.

Entering roses and/or admission to view the show is free, and American Rose Society Certified Consulting Rosarians will be available to discuss questions about roses and their care.

The show will be open for viewing from 2:00 to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday and following the 10:30 church service from noon to 1:30 p.m. Sunday. Please take time to stop and smell the roses—the winner of the Fragrance Class will be chosen from visitors’ votes on Saturday!

Exhibitors may prepare and place entries from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, June 25. Vases will be provided. All horticulture specimen roses must be grown by the exhibitor in their own private, outdoor garden. All roses used in arrangements must be outdoor garden grown and must be the dominant floral element in all designs. There are Novice classes in both horticulture and arrangements. The horticulture section has a class for unidentified roses (“No Name Rose”); all other classes, including arrangements, require entries to use the American Exhibition Name of each rose. For more information or a show schedule of the rules and classes, please email Corky Thacker or call her at 216.371.4693.

The church entrance for the show is from the east side parking lot. There is an elevator inside the door to the lower level, if needed. Otherwise, go down the stairs, turn right and down another flight of stairs into Strom Hall.
