The Roses are rapidly recovering from the Summer heat. The middle of October through December they will be at their best. There are nearly 10,000 Roses with several hundred varieties in all the beautiful rose coolers and types of blooms!

The roses are so beautiful and they smell heavenly! This is a lovely campus, and they maintain the Rose Garden well. We love to stop by when we are in the area.

Photographer's delight whether doing images of roses or using the garden as a backdrop to family photographs... the hot months of July and August blossoming slows down... but it is a joy to see.

A free public park that you can stroll around, sit and visit and just enjoy the flowers. Interesting to see the varieties names for Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Julia Childs and others. We were there over Easter weekend and still plenty of blooms.
