Founded in 2000, the Manhattan Rose Society (MRS) is an educational, not for
profit organization dedicated exclusively to the cultivation and enjoyment of
roses. The MRS is an affiliate of the American Rose Society (ARS), a national
organization with over 8000 members.
The American Rose Society exists to promote the culture and appreciation of the rose, through education and research, to members, to local rose societies and their members, and to the public.
Rose Society focuses on providing members with information on all
aspects of the rose including which roses grow best in our area,
techniques of environmentally friendly gardening, preserving heritage
roses, rose history and public rose gardens in our area.
MRS does not sponsor a rose show. A schedule of programs and
events, featuring private garden tours, is available online and in
our monthly member newsletter, Skyscrapers & Roses, which also features
hands-on seasonal information about growing great roses.
Manhattan Rose Society is also the East Coast partner of
the Huntington Botanical Garden in San Marino, California, in sponsoring the
annual Great Rosarian of the World Lectureship.
