The Heritage Rose Foundation was founded and developed to preserve and disseminate education and information about old garden roses and their origins and history.
The foundation's ideals match so closely with our own group's interests and goals that we feel a unique responsibility to encourage participation in this worthy organization. Please consider joining this group whose goal is to preserve and promote heritage roses throughout the world.
