Rose Garden Tour Information
The Rose Society of Saddleback Mountain invites you to celebrate our 24th year as an American Rose Society Chapter Affiliate. This year’s tour celebrates the passion of our gardeners as they reveal to us what inspires them to create their individual sense of beauty. This year we will visit three of Orange County’s most famous gardens…an impressionistic painter’s garden, a seaside bluff cottage, and a traveler’s secret B & B garden oasis. As well, we will tour two newly discovered gardens. One is inspired by the architecture of Greene & Greene. The other takes its inspiration from a long and endearing relationship with Bea Grow, a renowned OC gardener. These gardens are all personally designed and tended by their owners.
Receive a complimentary $10 gift certificate with each ticket purchased at Dana Point Nursery 34100 Pacific Coast Hwy Dana Point.
