Welcome to the Lake Superior Rose Society

The Lake Superior Rose Society began in 1996. Our group activities include:  the annual Winter Banquet in February; Annual wholesale rose orders--join us!; an annual Rose Show and Rose Fest on a mid-July Saturday, monthly meetings that include educational briefs by LSRS Consulting Rosarians and programs relating to rose growing. Members share information through personal anecdotes and offer their gardens for tours.   In 2004, the Lake Superior Rose Society hosted the American Rose Society, North Central District Rose Show.

The members of the Lake Superior Rose Society also serve the community through education and outreach by volunteering time in the Leif Erikson Rose Garden (LERG). These tasks include raising the roses in April, deadheading the spent blooms during the summer months, and helping in the final pruning and winterizing of the roses in October using the Minnesota Tip method.              

 Meet new people and enjoy learning more about roses. For more information, contact a Society officer

Visit Leif Erikson Rose Garden

  The tender roses have been cut back and the canes tied in preparation for tipping starting October 20.  Join us October 21 and 23 to tip roses.  Beginners are welcome!  Bring your bagged leaves to the Leif Erikson Rose Garden parking lot to be used as insulation for the roses over the winter.
