Welcome to Texas Rose Rustlers

Delightful Phyllis

Welcome to the website of the Texas Rose Rustlers. You have come to the right place if you are interested in old garden roses.


The present day Texas Rose Rustlers have changed some with the years, but still have the same purpose of joining together to share and gain knowledge of the old garden roses that our predecessors rustled from cemeteriesand deserted homesteads. Our actual rustles have changed into "cutting exchanges" as our numbers are too large for the old fashioned rustles. We do encourage others to rustle in smaller groups following the rustling etiquette.


We have three basic meetings: a Spring Meeting, a Summer Meeting (always at Mercer Arboretum), and a Fall Meeting. Either the Spring or Fall Meetings (or both) usually involve a full weekend of activities revolving around roses or gardening and are in various locationsaround the state.


You will find us still a welcoming, friendly group that strives to keep the love of old garden roses and the new roses that behave as old garden roses fervently alive. The friendships we have formed around our common love of these roses last a lifetime.
