Adopt-A-Rose Program

You can honor a loved one or celebrate a special event by adopting a rose through our Adopt-A-Rose program.

By adopting a rose, you will be helping to preserve, protect and enhance the Peninsula Park Rose Garden. We are dedicated to preserving the beauty and historic nature of the garden as a living resource for the community. You may have your choice of three types of roses for adoption, each for a period of three years:

  • Climbing Rose Trellis – $300
  • Caroline Testout, Portland’s Official Rose – $400
  • Sally Holmes Wall – $500

Your contribution is tax-deductible and includes a personalized plaque with four options for text, in addition to the name and date:

  • In Honor Of
  • In Memory Of
  • In Celebration of
  • Donated By

We’ll place the commemorative plaque next to your adopted rose. Also, if your adopted rose fails to thrive, we will move your plaque to another similar variety and honor your donation for a period of three years from the date made. We will notify you when your plaque has been installed. Your donation, net of the cost of producing and installing the plaque, will go directly back into the care of the over 6000 roses in the Peninsula Park Rose Garden.
