The Santa Barbara Rose Society will present David Austin's English Roses for California Gardens with Suzanne Horn, master rosarian, 7-9 p.m., Thursday, March 8, at Trinity Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall, 909 N. La Cumbre Road, Santa Barbara.

Community members are invited to socialize at 7 p.m., view the Little Rose Show at 7:15 p.m., and enjoy free refreshments before the program begins at 7:30 p.m. The event is free.

English roses are the most popular of the modern shrub roses, and were introduced to American gardens by British hybridizer David Austin, the Rose Society said.

Horn said she loves the romantic, old-style roses. Her talk will cover the history of David Austin Roses and what makes them romantic, as well as the family lines of these roses, varied forms and growth habits, shade tolerance, fragrance, growing tips, and their varied uses in the garden.

She will share information and photos about her favorites among the English Roses for display in the garden, on the show table, and as cut flowers for the home.
For those attending, if any roses are blooming in your garden, the Rose Society suggests bringing in a few for the Little Rose Show table, plus any potted roses you'd like to share.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
