When you think of roses, do the old standards come to mind? Mister Lincoln? Peace? Maybe the new knock-out line has caught your eye. All fine flowers, but the wide world of roses has so much more to offer.

The Orcas Island Garden Club will present Jeff Wyckoff at its next meeting on Oct. 16 at 10 a.m. in the Orcas Center Madrona room. Wyckoff will help to broaden your understanding and appreciation of roses, say organizers.

Wyckoff is author of  “Better Homes and Gardens’ Rose Gardening,” past president of the American Rose Society, American Rose Society Consulting Rosarian and Horticulture Judge, past director of the Pacific Northwest District of the American Rose Society and twice past president of Seattle Rose Society.
