    American Rose Society Consulting Rosarians (CR) are trained advisors on growing roses and rose culture.

    CRs willingly and enthusiastically share their time and talent with both new and old rosarians. We have several CRs in our Society and members can consult with them – free of charge.

    A CR can address almost any question about growing roses. A CR provides basic, as well as advanced, information to the rosarian. Our motto is to “keep the information simple and understandable”. For more Info: American Rose Society Consulting Rosarians
