Pretty pink roseNo matter what the climate — extremes of temperature, precipitation, and sunshine — people want roses blooming in their yards.

There are about 100 species, and thousands of cultivars, of this flower.

Even in the parched Mojave Desert, they can be desirable additions to the garden.

The public is invited to view the entries of the “We Never Promised You a Rose Garden, But We Got One” Rose Show from 1 – 4 p.m. at Cooperative Extension’s Lifelong Learning Center located at 8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev.
