The Santa Clarita Valley Rose Society is hosting its 17th annual rose show this Saturday, inviting rose gardeners from around the region to display their homegrown roses, reports

The event is co-sponsored by the County of Los Angeles Department of Parks and Recreation and is inviting everyone to bring in their roses in a bucket of water for a free exhibit and contest. "Anyone can just cut a rose out of their garden and enter it in the show, whether they are experienced or not," Kitty Belendez, SCV vice president, told the news source.

Organizers intend for the show to educate the public about plants. "This is what the Rose Society is all about - education, having fun, growing roses in the best possible way, sharing roses and meeting people," Belendez commented.

Around 1,000 rose specimens from various growers of Southern California will be displayed. The show will also feature antique roses from the 1800s and a celebration of the Most Fragrant Rose.

Those who would like to send a rose bouquet gift to someone special may consider an especially fragrant rose such as the Chrysler Imperial and the Sutters Gold, according to
