American Rose Society
Guide to U.S. Gardens:
The ARS Garden Guide lists all gardens that subscribe to the Reciprocal Admissions Program (RAP) — indicated with an asterisk* — and brief entries for many significant rose gardens, plus a limited number of nursery gardens that are open to the public.
Show your ARS membership card to gain free or reduced-cost admission to RAP gardens, in most cases. However, family members will need their own membership cards. Phone ahead to confirm card benefits, or check a garden’s website for details about hours, dates, etc. Estate garden card privileges may be restricted in particular.
FA indicates Free Admission, FP means Free Parking. Ninety-mile exclusion enforced means your ARS card cannot be used if you live within a 90 mile radius of the garden. If a garden has a gift shop, ask if discounts are available with your card. With nursery gardens always call ahead to arrange an appointment.
