The Augusta Rose Society, in conjunction with the Aiken Garden Show, present “The South in a Song”, an All-Arrangements Rose Show featuring hundreds of locally-grown garden roses. The show schedule features classes with titles of popular songs associated with the South and includes traditional, modern and Oriental-style designs. There will be some design Classes suited for hybrid tea or multiflora roses, and other for miniature or miniflora roses. The best thing for viewers thinking about growing their own roses for home bouquets is that the entry cards require the arranger to list the names of the roses used in the design. That card information is open on the table next to the design after the show has been judged. Viewers should come to the rose show, located in the Banksia Parlor, ready to note which varieties they would like for their home gardens. Then ask members of the Augusta Rose Society for information on where to buy these varieties and how best to take care of them!Amateur designers that would like to participate in this show may contact Pam Kolb,
Be sure to pick up your complimentary magazines, catalogues and brochures near the registration table on the South Patio.
