A Rose Garden in Tucson

THE GARDENS
on River and Campbell
UA County Extension


Right now is prime time rose season in Tucson.  There is something to be said about rose gardens and the magic they bring twice a year.  During the months of April and November, many rose bushes awaken with hundreds of lovely colors. Today let's take a walk through the rose garden at THE GARDENS off of River and Campbell.  I accidentally came upon these roses because there was a plant sale and was shocked by this amazing display of landscaping art.


Anything is possible.  This garden demonstrates that if you build it, they will grow:) The smell......
If you don't believe roses grow here in Tucson, you must check this garden out.  No charge.
Every color....every shape.....every size........
A walkway defines this entire garden.........
A place to sit and reflect.....

Yes....this is Tucson and yes there is a lot of 90 degree sunshine going on.......
Master rose gardeners, a society of them, come together and discuss soil and other rose topics to create this masterpiece......
The major rose display will finish up here in town around May.........

This rose was my favorite because of the color and size.

There is something magical about pink and white roses mixed together.  When I look at this pic, it takes me back to another time.  I shot two pics of this particular row because it triggered a happy memory.....my Auntie Vi.  She was one of my favorite Great Aunts growing up and her garden always made me smile.
I like roses but they do require some maintenance.  Many people say that they are really easy to grow and the quick answer is yes....BUT.....they don't always look so great in summer or after a particular windy season.  And there are insects that enjoy this plant......
However I do love them in other people's gardens......

Some roses have open form while others have a tighter bud.....

So you want roses now.....where can you get them?  Below are two pics from the rose section at Mesquite Valley Growers on Speedway and Pantano.  You have an endless variety to choose from....just take a look......

So you see......even in Tucson, "A rose is a rose is a rose."

Hope your spring is awakening creative thoughts in the garden!
