A commitment to preserving heirloom roses for tomorrow

The California Coastal Rose Society is a nonprofit organization that works to protect and preserve rare, unique, and historical roses.

Stop and save the roses.

The California Coastal Rose Society provides access to the world’s rarest roses through yearly rose sales. We reinvest sales revenues into seeking out and propagating roses that are otherwise unobtainable.

Rose auctions

Our rose sales offer an opportunity for you to grow a rare rose of your own; in doing so you help protect cultivars in danger of extinction.

Inclusive membership

We are a welcoming group of rose enthusiasts of all ages. Members attend monthly meetings held in Carlsbad, CA.

Community outreach

We’re proud to host rose shows, pruning workshops, and community events in the San Diego region.

Local and global partners

We stand in partnership with regional, national, and international rose organizations in the preservation and appreciation of the rose.

Learn from Master Rosarians

Through invited Master Rosarian presentations and in-depth demonstrations, increase your knowledge of rose culture best practices.

Volunteer Work

Our members make our organization and mission a success by donating their time, energy, and skills.
