Support The Friends of Vintage Roses
A Force to Save Roses from Extinction
A collection of more than 3,000 rose varieties will disappear without your support! Among them are many of the rarest and oldest of varieties and species that still survive. Together they tell a story of the hundreds of years that their beauty has touched humankind.
Few rose collections in the world contain such a wide cross-section of old and modern roses. Our goal to disseminate these roses to public gardens and growers offers hope to rose lovers world-wide.
The Friends maintain 4,000 rose plants in containers and more than 2,000 plants in a demonstration garden. One by one they will go extinct unless we act now. Your yearly membership donation of $35 or more helps to provide the care that these plants desperately need, keeping them healthy and free of weeds.
As a Guardian of the Roses you can provide steady support with monthly contributions of $10 or more. Please consider joining in that capacity. Your contribution is tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed under our 501(c)3 non-profit status. Help pass on this irreplaceable resource to future generations!
The basic membership is a $35 donation or you may select the basic membership plus an additional amount from the drop down list. For Guardian of the Roses memberships, click here.

Did you know that monthly contributions provide an efficient way of sustaining this rose preservation effort? TFoVR’s “Guardians of the Roses” are folks like you who have chosen to spread their donations out evenly over the year, providing a more consistent income that allows for ongoing costs in the care of the roses. Members like it because it is easier to budget and connects them with the preservation of the roses year round.
