"The Romance of English Roses" Thursday, February 26, 7pm at the Powerhouse.  Del Mar Rose Society February meeting featuring Suzanne Horn. 


Del Mar, CA - February 26, 2009 - The Del Mar Rose Society will feature noted exhibitor, speaker and writer Suzanne Horn at the February 26th meeting.  Her presentation is titled "David Austin and the Romance of the English Rose".
David Austin roses are a favorite among rose lovers.  His emphasis has been on breeding roses with the character and fragrance of Old Garden Roses, but with the repeat-flowering ability and wide color range of modern roses like hybrid teas and floribundas.  "Austin Roses" are commonly referred to by rosarians, nurseries and horticultural literature as "English Roses".
Ms. Horn is an avid rose exhibitor, goring an average of 450 exhibition roses of all types.  In addition, she is a Consulting Rosarian and Horticultural Judge.
The meeting kicks off at 7:00pm at the Powerhouse Community Center, located at 1658 Coast Blvd., Del Mar.  The public and guests are welcome.
