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.
All are invited to the 73rd Annual Rose Show. For the admission price to the Botanical Garden, ticket holders will be able to visit the show and the vast gardens where approximately 3000 plants in the genus Rosa in different 380 species and cultivars grow. Tickets can be purchased at the entrance to Norfolk Botanical Garden. $1.00 off coupon is available at the Norfolk Botanical Garden website.
Co-Chairs of the 2011 Rose Show are Casey Rise and Lee Snyder.
