Mr. Lincoln Roses

Every Friday morning we meet at the Music building courtyard fountain on the ASU Tempe campus. Learn how to care for the Mr. Lincoln red roses, Betty Boop floribunda roses, the mini roses and the Herb Garden.

We will be trimming dead rose blooms to stimulate more blooms, fertilize, water and weed every Friday morning. As time allows we will be detailing the landscape in the Secret Garden and the Herb Garden.

This is a great opportunity for Master Gardeners wanting to accrue volunteer hours and student service groups.

About The Arboretum at Arizona State University

Location:

1551 S. Rural Rd., Tempe, AZ 85287, US

Mission Statement

Arboretum Grounds Services: To create a natural environment where the public can enjoy an interactive garden that welcomes them to the ASU community. Arboretum Community Volunteers : Our mission as Arboretum Community Volunteers is to improve, maintain and harvest the ASU Arboretum gardens and support green initiatives and sustainable grounds keeping practices.

Description

The Arboretum at ASU serves the people of Arizona by providing access to information and experiences with plants in the setting of an educational public garden. It has an extensive date palm collection of over 400 specimens and 56 cultivars recognized by the North American Plant Collections Consortium (NAPCC) of the American Association of Botanical Gardens. The American Association of Botanical Gardens and Arboreta (AABGA) officially recognized this collection as the principle public garden collection of date palms in North America. Included on the main campus is the conifer collection, citrus collection, tropical plant displays, native plant and cactus, roses, the Desert Arboretum Park, Zen Garden, Herb Garden, and Computer Garden.

The Arboretum/Grounds Services is in the process of changing its traditional methods and equipment of grounds keeping. Many common tasks have been scrutinized for energy efficiency and environmental concerns and new sustainable solutions have been proposed and implemented.
