Collin County Rose Society (CCRS) was founded in 1995 with less than a dozen members and now its membership consists of over 60 rosarians. It is an affiliate of the American Rose Society, an educational and nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to the cultivation and enjoyment of roses. CCRS has served the community by promoting the growing of roses in home gardens, recommending varieties that are easy to grow and maintain, by providing advice on the treatment of insect and disease problems in gardens and by supporting city rose gardens. Each Spring, the public is invited to tour various member's gardens to see up close the beautiful roses that can be grown here and provide visitors with the opportunity to learn more about rose growing.
To provide an organization where rose enthusiasts can meet and share their mutual interest in growing roses;
To educate the community on successful methods for growing and caring for roses; and
To share the beauty of roses among the community by assisting in the development and care of municipal rose gardens.
Each year, CCRS has eight monthly meetings along with socials in January and July. Each meeting features an informative presentation on a rose-related topic. At times, we are even taken on a tour of a world renown rose garden to learn about roses and gardens in other areas. Whether you are a novice or seasoned rose gardener, we strive to have relevant content to help make us all better rosarians.
Meetings are held on the Spring Creek Campus of Collin College, which is located at 2300 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano. These are held on the first Friday of the month with hospitality beginning at 6:30pm and the program starting around 7pm. Guests are always welcome and there is no charge for attendance.
