A new year is here and we are already thinking about spring and what roses we will plant.

The Indianapolis Rose Society is gearing up for their annual rose sale. The order is placed and we think we have some of the best of the best coming.

As in the past, the roses will be available on a FIRST COME / FIRST SERVE basis and pre-orders are encouraged.


  • Pre-order is encouraged so you get the ones you want.
  • Pre-order Payment will be due at the March meeting – Tuesday, March 12, 6:00 – 6:30 pm 
(at Sullivan Munce Cultural Center  / 225 W. Hawthorne Street / Zionsville. Our regular meeting location.)


Tuesday, April 9, 6 – 6:30 pm. (Our regular meeting night.) Meeting will start about 6:45 pm  All roses that have not been pre-ordered will be available first come / first served

The roses will need to be picked up at the April meeting. If you are not able to pick them up, please have someone come for you. With our limited space, we will NOT be able to hold the roses for you.


Our prices are intentionally priced lower than usually found, as a service to our members and friends. In particular, David Austin roses sell for $40 and up.


  • David Austin: $25
  • All Other Roses: $20


  • David Austin: $30
  • All Other Roses: $25
