A Rose is a Rose is a Rose is a Rose…

On October 5 and 6, rosarians from all corners of the state bearing the best of blooms from their gardens will flock to the Garden Club of Virginia’s 73rd Annual Rose Show. The judged competition, sponsored by Norfolk’s Harborfront Garden Club, will take place at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens in the Rose Garden Hall.

Not only is it the goal of the Garden Club of Virginia to provide educational information about growing roses and showing roses, they will have on display interpretative flower arrangements from a competition between Garden Club of Virginia’s forty-seven member clubs.
