San Jose Municipal Rose Garden
San Jose Municipal Rose Garden in San Jose
The San Jose Municipal Rose Garden (5.5 acres) is a rose garden located at the intersection of Naglee Avenue and Dana Avenue, San Jose, California, in the Rose Garden neighborhood. It is open to the public daily without charge. Dogs are not allowed.

As an official Display Garden for the All-America Rose Selections (AARS) the San Jose Municipal Rose Garden receives AARS award winning roses in advance of public release. In the early 2000s, City budget cuts impacted the Rose Garden. In 2005 the AARS put the San Jose Municipal Rose Garden on probation and it was at risk of losing AARS accreditation. In 2007 Friends of the San Jose Rose Garden (FSJRG) was established, a volunteer nonprofit organization whose mission was to restore and renovate the San Jose Municipal Rose Garden. In December 2008 the AARS lifted the garden from probation and restored full accreditation. In 2009 over 800 new roses were planted as part of the restoration project.

San Jose's Municipal Rose Garden – a one-time prune orchard – is today one of the most attractive of its kind in the world, drawing thousands of visitors each year. The Garden is exclusively devoted to shrubs of the rose family and features over 4,000 rose shrubs with 189 varieties represented. Hybrid–teas comprise 75 percent of the plantings. These shrubs are characterized by a single high centered bloom per stem.

Visitors to the Garden can also expect to see floribundas, which have clusters of blooms per stem; grandifloras, which are taller than hybrid–teas and feature both clusters and single bloom stems; miniature roses; climbers, a rose variety that sends out long canes which are trained up onto the fences surrounding the Garden; and polyanthas, low growing rose shrubs with clusters of small flowers.

Visitors can enjoy colorful, showy blooms throughout the April to November season. A favorite time to visit though is early May when the acres of fragrant, majestic roses are at their most beautiful stage.
San José's Municipal Rose Garden is also home to newly hybridized rose and new rose varieties. In fact, the All-American Rose Selections, a national independent rating organization sends the new varieties to the Garden for testing before release to the general public. The roses are tested in areas like health, amount of blooms, color, form and unique qualities of bloom, before being accepted as a new variety and released to the public.
