The Jacksonville Rose Society is a non-profit organization, established in 1954. Located in Jacksonville, Florida, we are an affiliate of The American Rose Society
As stated in our charter, the purpose of our organization is to encourage the scientific study of plants and their culture, specifically roses, both old and modern, and to encourage the planting of roses for civic beautification.
Sandy Dixonwill present our June program—"Roses: Not Just for the Garden." Sandy will demonstrate informal rose arranging for the home and to share. The beauty and fragrance of your favorite roses, artfully mixed with other garden materials, will delight your family and visitors. Giving away or sharing rose arrangements will bring joy to others.
Sandy is an American Rose Society horticulture and arrangements judge and the national Associate Chairman of Arrangement Judges. She has been president of our Jacksonville society multiple times. For her service to the Deep South District, she was recently awarded the highest district award—the Silver Medal.
