Rose Garden

The Gottschalk-Hoeger Rose Garden features approximately 80 different varieties of roses and more than 450 plants. Roses of many different colors, shapes, and fragrances are featured, including: hybrid tea, grandiflora, floribunda, shrub climbing. Most of these were AARS Winners donated by All-America Rose Selections, Inc.

Our free-spirited, Old-Fashioned Rose Garden was established by the late Marlyn Bausman (pictured below) in memory of his daughter, Jodi. Many of our vintage roses, known for their fragrances, are more than 100 years old.

WITH APPRECIATION: Care and maintenance of the roses is the task of the Rose Team, a group of volunteers working from April through October to maximize the beauty of the gardens.
