Rose Days

Purple Rose

The CCUH is proud to have successfully held our 10th Annual Rose Days event in 2017 in partnership with Foundation Plant Services (FPS). The weekend, usually around the first weekend of May, hosts booths with rose experts and cultural information, tours to the FPS 8-acre rose gardens, and a wide selection of roses for sale graciously donated by California wholesale growers, Weeks Roses, Newflora, and Star Roses. Previous Rose Days have hosted presentations by rose researchers which are available as resources for you.
