For the first time the Charleston Lowcountry Rose Show will be held on James Island because Cypress Gardens is still closed.
Colorful modern hybrid teas, fragrant old garden roses and many others blooms will be on display during the 24rd Annual Charleston Rose Show on April 30 at the James Island Town Hall, 1238-B Camp Rd.
The show draws both novices and experts exhibiting 100’s of local grown roses of every color and form.
This year, there are over 25 exhibition categories from Noisette Roses, Shrub Roses and Hybrid Teas to Miniature roses. There will also be a Rose Photography Exhibition open only to members of Charleston Lowcountry Rose Society. Information about the society and how to grow beautiful roses will be available during the show.
Having membership in a rose society is not required to participate. Specimens entered must have been grown by the exhibitor in his or her own garden. Stems should be as long as possible and blooms should be open, vases will be provided.
Entries will be accepted 7-10 a.m., with judging set to begin at 10:15 a.m. The show will be open to the public noon-5 p.m.
Rules, judges and guidelines for judging are found on the society’s website at https://charlestonlowcountryrose.wordpress.com/ or our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.
