SymROSEium 2022

April 9 9:30AM to 1:00PM

Denver Botanic Gardens

Mitchell Hall

Free with Admission to DBG


If your rose bucket list includes attending only one SymROSEium you will certainly want to make 2022 THE one!


Paul Zimmerman is coming to Denver! And he will be our one and only keynote speaker. Paul’s philosophy on growing roses is that it should be simple and fun. He tells us that roses are nothing more than flowering shrubs and that’s how you should use, and treat them. His goal is to make roses less intimidating. He gardens organically. What a guy! Join us as he covers these topics and more:

  • What is a garden rose
  • Ways to use them in a garden setting
  • Tips for climbing roses
  • Sustainable Rose Care – Soil Preparation – Fertilizing – Fungus
  • Natural ways to deal with insect pests including Japanese Beetles.


Paul is the author of Everyday Roses, an “Independent Consultant” to Jackson & Perkins, and an internationally known speaker. His background includes a stint as a standup comedian, he attended clown school, and he calls his acreage in SC “The Funny Farm”. I definitely think you need to be in Mitchell Hall on April 9 to hear his program.


And if that’s not enough to convince you please check out his popular (over 4.2 million collective views) YouTube channel to see more of what he’s all about. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McIk_ct1YZo&feature=youtu.be
