Rose Garden Tour Information
The Rose Society of Saddleback Mountain invites you to celebrate our 25th 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 five of Orange County’s unique and exquisite gardens… a garden so beautiful it inspires a professional photographer and a blog, a European styled garden, a garden in a bowl looped by giant Redwoods, a garden featuring an incredible water garden oasis, and a garden delight created in a challenging space.
