We Help You Help Your Roses Grow!

About Us

The South Central District consists of all the American Rose Society local societies in Oklahoma, Texas, and Arkansas (excluding Eastern Arkansas). The officials are American Rose Society members, who have excelled in their local societies, and now are giving their time to make other societies successful. The District is directed by a volunteer Board of Directors. See the below for a  complete list.  The SCD is a non-profit society for the enjoyment of roses.

Educational Opportunity


The GTRS will host a Consulting Rosarian School March 9 at the Beaumont Botanical Gardens in Tyrrell Park. The school is open to anyone who wants to learn more about roses. If you meet the qualifications listed below you may become a CR. The school is also for existing CR’s to re-certify which must be done every 4 years. The program will begin at 8:30am and end at 1:00pm. Everyone is invited!!
