West Virginia's nationally recognized municipal rose garden containing 1,000
plants and noted for it's All-American Rose Selections. It is an
accredited test garden and a favorite spot for weddings and receptions.
The Rose Garden features many different types and colors of roses with names such as, "Queen Elisabeth," "Moonstone," and "St. Patrick" and Watts applies his specific care to all. Watts uses mushroom compost soil, which he says helps hold the water best.
"They say that all men are created equal. That saying does not apply to roses." Watts said. "Each species of rose requires different care."
The Rose Garden is home to weddings, proposals, prom photos and more. Watts says his motivation is the people he meets and seeing first hand the joy the garden brings.
With the addition of the multipurpose facility called "A Room With A View" in 1999, the Ritter Park Rose Garden continues to lead the way as the jewel of the park system.
