Located at 2500 Charlie Bird Parkway, this rose garden is an easy walk from the DART Station and on the west side of City Hall.
It is a test garden for several national rose growers for the evaluation of new roses on all of the characteristics consumers’ desire in a garden plant. The American Garden Rose Selections program (AGRS) has selected the garden as one of its test sites. The extensive two-year trial program is in test gardens located throughout the country and representing all climate zones. Rose varieties in these trial gardens receive only as much care as would be given in the average home garden.
Displays of Roses
