The 2018 CCRS "Save the Roses" 18th Annual Rose Plant Auction will be held during the ARS National Convention in San Diego on Sunday October 28th, 2018. We are delighted to conduct this year's Auction in conjunction with the San Diego Rose Society to honor Robert Martin Jr.'s installation as ARS President. Bob Martin has been a big supporter of the "Save the Roses!" campaign.

This Auction is being held at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Mission Valley at 2270 Hotel Circle North, San Diego, CA 92108 (619-297-1101). As usual, it will consist of both a SILENT portion from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM and a LIVE portion from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM.

The Steering Committee members have already begun identifying and sorting plants for the 2018 Auction. As always, plants from our own collection will be supplemented by the generous donations made by so many Auction supporters from all across the country. The majority of these varieties are not available in commerce. This year we are making every possible effort to offer participants even greater numbers of extremely rare or absolutely unique plants that we have gathered, divided from mother plants in our plant library, rooted or grafted. As usual, we will list the plants on this website just as quickly as possible. However, we always manage to add a few "surprises" up to and just before the time of the Auction, so do check back here on a regular basis.

There is no admission charge for those attending the Auction. Purchases may be made by check, cash or credit card and internet bids will be accepted though we really hope you will join us IN PERSON.

Please do make plans to join us in October!
