Next Meeting - Friday, October 13,
Program - The Little Soulieana Seedling That Could

On September 20, 2017, Tom Carruth presented a talk about "The Little Soulieana Seedling That Could"
(How one unnamed seedling that was almost lost became a major bloodline in my career)
to the East Bay Rose Society. Many of you were unable to attend.
John filmed the talk which we will present at our meeting.

Tom Carruth is an internationally recognized and truly eminent authority on rose breeding.
He is currently curator of the rose collections at the Huntington Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California.

Free to the public.

About the SCCRS

The Santa Clara County Rose Society (SCCRS) was founded in 1927, and is affiliated with the American Rose Society (ARS).
Our mission is to encourage interest in the rose, to promote its cultivation,
and to disseminate information on its culture among any interested people.
Although this home page is mostly intended for residents of Santa Clara County,
we hope that people outside the county will find it useful too.
