Western Cape Rose Society

A close up of a flower
The Western Cape Rose Society was established in 1969 and was the brainchild of Professor Sid Cywes and Mr Willie Staegeman. Many years later Mr Willie Krause owner of Eden Nurseries in Paarl, Duncan Henderson of Duncan Roses in Elgin and Dick and Linda Linder joined the society. The Linders were the driving force behind the establishment of the Durbanville Rose Garden and the trial grounds. In 1983 the rose garden was opened by Gene Louw then the Administrator of the Cape. Today we have +- 90 members from all parts of the Western Cape. The society meets during the year as well as hosts various exciting events during the year to suit both the casual rose fan and the passionate enthusiast alike.
