Let the OCRS show you how
The Oct. 1 online meeting will be a special presentation by the curator of roses at the Huntington Library and rose hybridizer Tom Carruth. Due to expected demand, an RSVP via the "Meetings" page is requested, and the event is open only to members of select roses societies. Please see additional information on this site's meetings page.

One of the missions of the OCRS is to educate the public about roses and their care. If you would like to learn more about roses, you can begin by clicking the "Rose Care" link above. From there you will be able to find information on the different types of roses, selecting and planting a rose, tips on feeding, chili thrips and more!
WELCOME TO THE OCRS WEBSITE!
The Orange County Rose Society (OCRS) was founded in 1964 in Orange County, California. The organization is dedicated to promoting the cultivation of roses, educating the public about roses and their care, and sponsoring rose competitions. We are an affiliate of the American Rose Society (ARS) and part of the Pacific Southwest District of the ARS. New members are always welcome. We meet the first Thursday of the month (except July and August) at 7:30 p.m. (meet and greet begins at 7 p.m.) at the Westminster Community Center, 8200 Westminster Avenue (corner of Jackson Street and Westminster Avenue). Our meetings are always free and open to the public, and there is no charge for parking in the lot behind the building.
The Orange County Rose Society also would like to thank the City of Westminster for allowing us to use their facilities and for their assistance in our annual rose show.
