San Jose Municipal Rose Garden
The San Jose Municipal Rose Garden is the historic garden founded in 1927 that is dedicated exclusively to roses and rose variations. Featuring over 3,500 shrubs and 189 different rose varieties, it is easy to see why this has been called both 'America's Best Rose Garden', and 'one of the most attractive of its kind in the world'.
Rose bloom season is anywhere from April to November, this 1-time prune orchard typically the busiest in early May. The area totals at 5.5 acres and also holds a gorgeous reflecting pool and 2-tier fountain amidst the gardens. The entire area is also surrounded by gorgeous redwood trees almost acting as natural borders, yet another addition to its overall beauty.
Thousands of visitors a year come to see the floribundas, grandifloras, mini roses, climbers, polyanthas, and other hybridized roses tested by the All-American Rose Selections group. See varieties you never have before like the 'VooDoo', 'Bon Bon', and 'San Jose Sunshine' roses.
