Tower Hill Botanic Garden presents Rose Show June 16

Tower Hill rose for Father's DayBoylston – The rose, often considered the “Queen of Flowers,” and the U.S. National Flower, will be the subject of a colorful and fragrant one-day exhibit at Tower Hill Botanic Garden on Sunday, June 16, from 12 to 5 p.m., when the Yankee District of the American Rose Society presents its annual summer show. As the Rose Show coincides with Father’s Day Weekend, all dads are admitted free this weekend, June 15 – 16.

A huge variety of roses will be on display, including hybrid teas, floribundas, climbers, grandifloras, and miniatures. In addition, there will be an “Arrangements” division, showcasing flower arrangements that make use of roses. The show will be judged in the morning hours, and then opens to the public from approximately 12 noon to 5 p.m. The roses are judged for form, color, substance, stem & foliage, balance & proportion, and size. There is also a division for the most fragrant rose!

The Yankee District of the ARS has been active since 1940, and is an official chapter of the American Rose Society, which is “dedicated to the enjoyment, enhancement, and promotion of the rose, our National Floral Emblem.” More information about the NERS can be found at www.arsyankee.org.

The Rose Show is included with admission to Tower Hill Botanic Garden which is free for Tower Hill members and children under 6, as well as dads for the weekend of June 15 – 16; $12 for adults; $9 for seniors; and $7 for youth aged 6 – 18. WOO Card holders save $2 on admission and earn points toward prizes.

Tower Hill is located at 11 French Dr. in Boylston, exit 24 off Interstate 290. For more information, call 508-869-6111 or visit www.towerhillbg.org.
