Temecula Valley Rose Society to host meeting


The Temecula Rose Society will host its monthly meeting focusing on CALSCAPE to learn about California’s native roses at the Temecula Library, 30600 Pauba Road, in Temecula, Thursday, March 19, at 10 a.m.

Riverside County master gardener and California Native Plant Society member Becky Levers will be the speaker at the event which is expected to last until 1 p.m.

Temecula Valley Rose Society member Jim Moss will also cover rose history and roses of Idaho after Levers’ presentation.

“Our state is one of the most diverse areas on Earth – we have a Mediterranean climate and 10 distinct biological regions, including mountains, deserts, valleys, foothills and coastlines, as well as the highest growth, the lowest, the biggest and the oldest,” the society said.

The goal of the Temecula Valley Rose Society, which meets the third Thursday of every month, is to educate the public about the 6,000 to 7,000 plants that are native to California.
