Rose Donation Wish List
The Friends of the Rose Garden are pleased to accept donations for pre-orders of new roses to be planted in the Rose Garden next spring. Any donations made in 2023 will go toward the 2024 season.
To reserve your memorial rose(s), please email Austin. Payment for memorial roses as well as general donations to support the improvement and upkeep of the garden can be made by cash, check, or online payment. Checks should be made out to the Friends of the Longview Library; please put "Rose Garden" in the memo line. Online payment can be made through GiveButter. Roses are $50 each, and donors can choose from the roses listed below. The number after each rose name is the quantity needed. Ten roses make a full bed, but donation of the full bed of ten is not required. If a selected rose becomes entirely unavailable, the Friends will work with the donor to find a substitute.
Memorial recognition is for the lifetime of the rose.
