Rose Haven entrance

Our garden, begun in 1991, is home to approximately 1,600 roses: hybrid teas, floribundas, climbers and mini roses. In addition, there are many succulents and xeriscape plant sections. Our January and February workshops, open to the public, concentrate on pruning, while March and April activities include pruning and fertilizing.

First blooms are enjoyed during April and May. June through August are spent weeding and deadheading.

The cooling in Autumn brings another flush of bloom before we let the garden slip into dormancy at the end of the year.

Rose Haven is located at 30592 Jedediah Smith Rd., Temecula, at the corner of Cabrillo Avenue. From Rancho California Road drive south on Ynez Road 2-1/2 miles to Jedediah Smith Road, then turn left. Rose Haven is one block from the intersection of Jedediah Smith and Ynez. (Be aware that Ynez turns into De Portola Rd. at that intersection!)

Rose Haven Heritage Garden is a member of the American Public Gardens organization and also a certified wildlife sanctuary recognized by the National Wildlife Federation in 2011.

Visitors (and photographers) are always welcome, and there is ample parking on site. Professional photographers are expected to make a suitable donation for using the garden. Contact us at RosehavenTemecula@gmail.com for further information.

The garden is open every day of the year from sunrise to sunset. Please do not cut the flowers—leave them for others to enjoy.

This week's snowfall in Temecula made for some especially significant memories for some families. Here's one.

PHOTO: A SoCal couple gets engaged at the Rose Haven Heritage Garden in Temecula, Calif. on Dec. 31, 2014.

When Southern California residents awoke this New Year's Eve to the region blanketed in white from a rare snowstorm, it made
for many beautiful memories and photographs. And for one local couple, it was a life-changing day.

That's because on Dec. 31, Peter "Scooter" Minegar took the opportunity to propose to Samantha Lawless in a snow-covered Temecula park, in a story best told by his sister, Amber Thomas:

"He had planned on proposing that evening and had made a beautiful plan for the day but then there was the snow," Thomas told Patch. "So my mom and I woke him up and said, 'you've GOT to do it in the snow' (Sam has always said it would be a dream to get engaged in the snow)."

"While he picked her up, my mom, other brother and I went and hid in the bushes around the rose garden so we could take pictures of them," she said. The result was the beautiful photo attached to this article – and a YES from Samantha! Congrats to the happy couple!
