Adopt a Rose for Valentine’s Day

The Gift that Keeps on Living

Valentine's Rose Garden

Looking for a distinctive Valentine's gift? A bouquet of roses will last a week, but a rose bush will bloom throughout the year. With your donation of $50, Guadalupe River Park Conservancy will help you select the perfect rose and prepare a gift box for your Valentine.

The gift box includes:

  • an announcement card that informs the recipient about the rose adoption, location, variety name and inscription
  • a small box of decadent chocolates from Schurra's Candy Factory
  • a large gourmet cookie from Café Too! at the San Jose Museum of Art
  • one free red rose each month for a year from Citti's Florist
  • your personal messages on a plaque by the rose bush of your choice in the San Jose Heritage Rose Garden for a full year

Rose adoptions are partially tax deductible and help support the upkeep of San Jose's Heritage Rose Garden, the largest collection of rose varieties in the western hemisphere.

Gift packages will be available for pick-up, prior to Valentine's Day, at the Guadalupe River Park & Gardens Visitor & Education Center located at 438 Coleman Avenue. For more information about adopting a rose for your Valentine, visit or call 408-298-7657.
