    THE SMITHSONIAN GARDENS INVITES YOU TO A PRIVATE TOUR & RECEPTION AT 

                                 THE KATHERINE DULIN FOLGER ROSE GARDEN

                                               Sunday September 9 at 2:00pm

     

    Join the Potomac Rose Society on Sunday September 9 at 2:00pm for a private garden tour and reception at the recently renovated Katherine Dulin Folger Rose Garden with Smithsonian Gardens Horticulturalist Shelley Gaskins.  

    This tour is a follow-up to Shelley’s standing-room only presentation to PRS in November 2016 on the renovation of the garden and the decision to include disease resistant rose varieties along with companion plantings to attract beneficial insects.  Many of the new roses are now in their second year, so this will be an excellent opportunity to view a wide selection of healthy varieties and get new ideas to incorporate into your own gardens.  

    The Katherine Dulin Folger Rose Garden is located on the National Mall at 

    900 Jefferson Drive SW, Washington, DC, in front of the Arts & Industries Building and East of the Smithsonian Castle.  The Smithsonian Metro Station (Blue, Orange and Silver Lines) is one quarter of a mile from the garden, an easy 5 minute walk.  Smithsonian Gardens will provide light refreshment.  Please visit  http://potomacrose.org/events/  for additional information.   We look forward to seeing you there!
