About Us

The California Coastal Rose Society (CCRS) is located in Carlsbad, California (northern portion of San Diego County). We are part of the American Rose Society (ARS). We are a service organization providing instruction in rose horticulture to our own members, to other ARS Societies and most importantly to the general public. We do this at our regularly scheduled meetings, at public gardens and at our yearly ARS Rose Show on the first weekend of May. Our Rose Show has become one of the largest in Southern California in terms of not only specimens displayed by exhibitors but also in public attendance.

Our yearly Auction raises money to pay for the Rose Show and other educational materials. It is our Society's sole fund raising opportunity.
