HRF to have annual Membership Meeting in Shreveport in conjunction with the ARS National Convention and Rose Show

The question was posed  “Why would an HRF member want to travel to Shreveport for an ARS National Convention?” Let me share my top ten reasons:

  • See if Lady Luck is with you at local casinos.

  • Shop with convention vendors.

  • Sunday bus tour ending with a dinner in the Wellan garden

  • Exhibit your blooms in the National Rose show – yes there are categories for Heritage Roses.

  • Share your enthusiasm for Heritage Roses with others.

  • To see how the establishment of the Anne Belovich rambler collection is progressing.

  • To see first-hand in person the Great Garden Restoration and the Franks Garden which the HRF has supported with its resources.

  • A HRF membership meeting (in person!).

  • Attend programs directed specifically to Heritage Roses

  • To share time with other rose enthusiasts. There will be a garden filled with gardeners who see the rose in many different ways.

Goals of the Heritage Rose Foundation
  •  The collection of roses originating in the nineteenth century or earlier and roses with particular historic, educational, or genetic value (heritage roses).

  •   The establishment of one or more gardens wherein heritage roses may be grown and displayed.

  •   The advancement of research and investigations into heritage roses, including history, identification, genetics and breeding, propagation, diseases and pests, and suitability for landscape use.

  •   The publishing and dissemination of information about heritage roses, including any and all research that emanates from the foundation.

  •   The establishment and maintenance of a library of books, periodicals, research papers, manuscripts, catalogues, and other items to facilitate further research and investigation into heritage roses.

  •   The establishment of public knowledge of heritage roses through seminars, meetings, forums, panels, lectures, tours and exhibits designed to encourage and increase the public's perception of heritage roses.


The Heritage Rose Foundation is a nonprofit organization established in 1986, devoted to the preservation of old roses.
