2017 ROSES IN REVIEW

This year’s Roses in Review (RIR) marks the 92nd time that American Rose Society members have evaluated new rose introductions. The forms and instructions were distributed with the July/August issue of the American Rose or they can be viewed on the ARS website (www.rose.org) together with a list of the roses to be evaluated. For the results to be meaningful, we need everyone to participate. Anyone who grows roses may make a review.   They need not be a member of a local rose society or the American Rose Society.  Whether you grow only one plant of one variety on the list or many of them, we need your contribution. We need input from “garden” rosarians as well as exhibitors, and from new rosarians as well as seasoned veterans. We also welcome reports from those who are not yet ARS members, so please pass along this website address (www.rose.org) to your rose-growing friends. Take a few minutes of your time to evaluate your new roses. Only evaluate roses you grow from the cultivar list. Reviews must be submitted by September 26, 2017. Your reports will be automatically sent to your District coordinator.

The complete results of this survey will be included in the January/February 2018 issue of American Rose, and will help determine the garden ratings in the ARS Handbook for Selecting Roses as an important tool for us in selecting roses for our gardens.
