Membership in the Indianapolis Rose Society is open to anyone interested in roses.

We have members who are just starting to learn about roses and members who grow from one rose to those who grow 400 roses and are excellent at mentoring.

For $20 per year, members receive advanced knowledge of in-person and zoom programs, access to members-only recordings of zoom programs, discounts on roses via our annual rose sale, automatic inclusion in district educational events, 4 months free trial membership in the American Rose Society, invitations to member garden tours and demonstrations, plus access to a wealth of information from current members!

We are a group of amateur rose growers with varied levels of experience–members with hundreds of roses and members who have 1 or 2.  Making this group the perfect place to learn!

While our society is classed as a horticultural society, in reality, its function is to educate–through information offered at meetings, workshops, newsletters, website, blog and our social media presence.

Our time together ranges from member garden parties, wine and roses parties and tours (always popular as there are some amazing gardens) to workshops on rose pests and diseases, general rose care, as well as recommendations for growing roses in our region! It is amazing how much we learn from the experts we bring in and from our local members! There’s always friends, fun, food and plenty of ROSE TALK!
