American Rose Society LogoThe American Rose Society exists to promote the culture and appreciation of the rose, through education and research, to members, to local rose societies and their members, and to the public.

Founded in 1892, the American Rose Society is the oldest single plant horticultural society in America. The ARS is an educational, nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to the cultivation and enjoyment of roses. ARS supports its members by providing educational programs, resourceful publications, and continuing research. We have more than 300 affiliated rose societies in our national network.

ARS is headquartered on the grounds of the beautiful American Rose Center near Shreveport, Louisiana. The American Rose Center features more than 20,000 rose bushes that comprise nearly 400 cultivars of modern and old garden roses

The Minnesota State Horticultural Society since 1866, has been nurturing gardeners throughout Minnesota and the upper Midwest. We help gardeners—and gardens—grow by providing resources.

With only 55% of our operating cost covered by membership and subscription dues, we rely on additional contributions to not only sustain the services we offer to members, but to expand those services to those who have yet to discover the many benefits that gardening offers.
