WORLD FEDERATION OF ROSE SOCIETIES

The World Federation of Rose Societies is a federation of the national rose societies of 36 countries around the world.

The World Federation of Rose Societies (WFRS) was founded in 1968 in London, England by representatives from the rose societies of Australia, Belgium, Israel, New Zealand, Romania, South Africa, Great Britain and the United States of America. Soon they were joined by associations from Canada, India, Japan and Switzerland .

The society holds conventions, usually once in three years, to encourage and facilitate the interchange of information about and knowledge of the rose between national rose societies.

Other issues that the World Federation Of Rose Socities deals with are

  • Research on Rose growing
  • Naming convention of Roses.
  • Unifomity in classification of Roses.
  • Coordinating various databases on Roses in different countries.

These achievements are showcased through the publication of the annual Rose Directory and the thrice a year The World Rose News.

Over the years the WFRS has given international awards to outstanding roses and to some of the stars of the rose world who have contributed both to the rose and to the WFRS. It has also honored outstanding rose gardens of the world.

Some of the awards given are

  • WFRS Rose Hall Of Fame
  • WFRS Old Rose Hall of Fame
  • WFRS Garden Awards

Rose trials are held around the world many times a year and results published on the website. Also on the website you can find the list of affiliated socities.
