Our Rose Garden Weekend is shaping up to be a festival of flowers both classic and contemporary, from hybrid teas and shrub roses to the most superlative floribundas.

Stop in all weekend long for live music and dance, plein-air painting, drinks, and talks with the Garden’s top rose experts that’ll set you on the path to a thriving rose garden of your own. You might even win one of our incredible plants to take home—learn more here.

And if you’re not yet sold, have a look at just a few of the flowers in bloom this week.

I can’t wait to take my mom to the Rose Garden Weekend this summer. Will be looking out for the event and hopefully, she will be inspired to help me grow some roses this summer too! Thanks for the beautiful pictures!!
