Our society exists "to increase the general interest in cultivation and improve the standard of excellence of the rose for all people.
On March 3, 1950 a group of fourteen men, all enthusiastic Rose Hobbyists, met at the Central Library and organized the Men’s Rose Society of Birmingham.
The first Rose Show was held in Vestavia in 1952. Since then, a Rose Show has been sponsored each year.
In 1955, the organization was changed. Ladies and anyone interested in growing roses, were made eligible for membership. At that time the name was changed to The Birmingham Rose Society.
Special Announcement Concerning COVID-19
Your health and well being are uppermost in our minds as we all deal with the COVID-19 virus. With that in mind we have made the painful but necessary decision to cancel our March and April meetings as well as our beloved Birmingham Rose Show which was scheduled for Mother's Day Weekend at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.
We urge everyone to spend this time at home and in the garden with your family and those you love.
Elizabeth Coleman, President
Birmingham Rose Society.
