The Final BowThe 2017 CCRS Rare and Unusual Rose Plant Auction was a 3-day event! It was held on Friday October 20th through Sunday October 22th. On Friday evening, a mixer was held. On Saturday there was a very special series of presentations of the roses in the Silent Auction, by some of the stalwarts of the American rose community.

The 2017 Auction was held at the 'QLN Conference Center' located at 1938 Avenida del Oro, Oceanside, CA 92056. Both the SILENT and LIVE auctions took place on Sunday, October 22, 2017.

The Steering Committee members have already begun identifying and sorting plants for the 2018 Auction. As always, plants from our own collection will be supplemented by the generous donations made by so many Auction supporters from all across the country. Many roses are not available anywhere else in the country. As usual, we will list the plants on this website just as quickly as possible. However, we always manage to add a few "surprises" right at the time of the Auction.

There is no change in the minimum bid raise rule (minimum of $1), payment remains check, cash or credit card and internet bids will be accepted though we really hope you will join us IN PERSON for the event. For those of our rose friends that cannot attend, we will accept internet bids prior to the auction and will hold roses until spring for those that live in colder areas of the country. Out of town winners must also pay for shipping.

Please do make plans to join us next year!
