Roses for Mom: The San Francisco Rose Show returns

SAN FRANCISCO (CRON) — The San Francisco Rose Society celebrated its 81st annual Mother’s Day rose show since its three-year hiatus.

The show made an in-person comeback following the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. The event is part of many events organized by the American Rose Society, an organization dedicated to rose breeding.

Each society organizes events on different days depending on the season. However, the San Francisco Chapter hosts the event exclusively on Mother’s Day.

“We’re lucky here that the show coincides with Mother’s Day.” Kleyton Jones, President of the San Francisco Rose Society Chapter. “Everyone looks forward to it every year.”

The free event took place in Golden Gate Park on Sunday afternoon. Local residents brought home-grown roses for the jury to choose a winner. Roses were graded using the American Rose Society’s standards, Jones said.

After the winner was announced, the roses were offered to contestants free of charge. Jones believes offering bouquets of flowers complements the Mother’s Day theme for the event. Residents took flowers home as potential Mother’s Day gifts.

“What’s better than showing roses and then having people who love them take them home?” Jones said.

The event also serves to educate the public about proper rose care and not just for aesthetic reasons. Jones wants people to see the joy in roses.

“We want people to find information about roses and rose growing,” he said. “It is a joy to have a garden of growing roses.”

The Rose Society has future events planned throughout the year. Here you will find the event list of the chapter here.
