24th Annual Antique ROSE SALE

April 13 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join us for the first day of our 24th Annual Antique Rose Sale.  We will have over 100 varieties of antique roses for sale as one, two and three year old plants, rooted from Old City 
Cemetery’s antique rose collection.  The sale will also include a small number of antique roses curated from select growers of old roses, as well as peonies and perennials.

This is the largest sale of antique rose varieties in the Mid-Atlantic area. 

This sale will continue thru June, during our normal hours of operation.

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 event will be held rain or shine.
