No 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.

Now is the time for home gardeners to show-off their beautiful blooming flowers at the first annual South Valley Rose Society’s Rose Show on Saturday, Nov. 18. All Exhibitors are welcome and need not be a member of a Rose Society.

The doors will be open at 6 a.m. Entries will be accepted for cut rose stems grown in a private outdoor garden, rose arrangements, and/or rose photography between 6:30 - 9:45 a.m. Prep areas will be available for the exhibitors, and volunteers will be present to assist. Judging will begin at 10 a.m.

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 University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Lifelong Learning Center located at 8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev.

For additional information please email or call the Master Gardener Help Desk at 702-257-5555 and leave your name and phone number. A member of the rose show committee will contact you.
