Join Lisa Smith and Nancy Reid of Big Blend Radio on the Spirit of America Tour as they explore the American Rose Center, Shreveport Louisiana. Headquarters of the American Rose Society, Lisa & Nancy chat with Amanda Figlio about the gardens, the history of the American Rose Society and about roses in general.
The spectacular Gardens of the American Rose Center are located on a 118-acre wooded tract near Shreveport, Louisiana. The gardens are home to the national headquarters of the American Rose Society. We are the nation’s largest park dedicated to roses. The gardens were dedicated in 1974, when the American Rose Society headquarters moved to Shreveport, Louisiana from Columbus, Ohio. Today, the American Rose Center features more than 65 individual rose gardens and 20,000 rosebushes, with a variety of companion plants, sculptures and fountains, including the beautiful Dudley Watkins Reflection Pool.
