The Lake Superior Rose Society began in 1996. Our group activities have included: member garden tours; road trips to garden nurseries, public and private garden tours; the annual mid-winter banquet; July potluck picnic; August wholesale plant orders; monthly meetings that include educational briefs by LSRS Consulting Rosarians, monthly programs of interest, and additional topics relating to rose growing. The members share information through personal anecdotes. We also host an annual LSRS Rose Show and Rose Fest on the second Saturday of July each year. In 2004, the Lake Superior Rose Society hosted the American Rose Society, North Central District Rose Show. We host fundraising activities to help defray costs of this non-profit society.
The members of the Lake Superior Rose Society also serve the community through education and outreach by volunteering time in the Leif Erikson Rose Garden (LERG). These tasks include raising the roses in April, deadheading the spent blooms during the summer months, and helping in the final pruning and winterizing of the roses in October using the Minnesota Tip method.
Meet new people and enjoy learning more about roses. For more information, contact a Society officer.
