Year of the Rose

On June 1, 2001, a joint session of Congress officially proclaimed 2002 as the Year of the Rose. Just as the American Eagle is a symbol of strength and victory, the Rose is the National Flower.

The YEAR of the ROSE 2002 was a worldwide, year long event designed to promote the rose as a universal symbol of love, friendship, beauty and peace; a flower of unsurpassed importance in art, history, music and literature. Roses are the world’s favorite flower, which has provided inspiration to mankind since the beginning of time, according to the American Rose Society.

Tallahassee Area Rose Society members, Hank Rosen, Bill Dority, Frank Parker and others spent a full day at Lowes locations in Tallahassee as other local rose society members did nation wide. We answered questions and demonstrated how to recognize insects and diseases commonly found on roses as well as how to care for and trim different types of roses.
