Rose Sale Will Continue Through June 2nd, 2019
9 am-3 pm Monday – Saturday, & 1-5 pm Sunday
Please join us for our sale of heirloom roses.
Over 350 varieties of old garden roses, many of which are ancestors of modern roses, are planted along both sides of the historic brick wall and scattered throughout our 27 acres. Walk along the brick wall, and purchase your favorite roses. The month of May is when the roses are in their peak bloom.
Don’t miss this opportunity to purchase many of our antique rose varieties as one year, two year or three year old plants. There are hundreds of roses in various sizes still available for purchase.
All sale proceeds benefit the continued preservation and interpretation of the Old City Cemetery, a Virginia Historic Landmark on the National Register of Historic Places. This sale will be held rain or shine.
