The A.C. Postel Memorial Rose Garden, adjacent to the Santa Barbara Mission, contains over 1,500 rose plants and is maintained throughout the year by Rose Society members, Parks Division caretaker staff, and volunteers.
For many years the All-American Rose Selections designated the A.C. Postel Memorial Rose Garden as one of 130+ demonstration rose gardens throughout the country, displaying the top performing new rose varieties developed and selected each year after an extensive two-year trial program where they are judged on 15 characteristics – from disease resistance and flower production to color and fragrance. A significant portion of the roses displayed in the garden are past A.A.R.S. winners.
