Mississippi State University’s Veterans Memorial Rose Garden is located across State Highway 182 from the main campus at the entrance of R. R. Foil Plant Science Research Center--commonly known as North Farm. The area features a central gazebo surrounded by raised brick-bordered beds and three arbors. Compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, the peaceful public space is home to more than 200 plants and 60 rose varieties, including Old Garden, modern shrub and groundcover. Spring and fall are the peak blooming seasons.In addition to ongoing community tours, the garden is the frequent meeting site for garden and master gardener organizations, among others. Given its location on grounds of the Foil Plant Science Research Center, the garden is part of a multi-site study area for scientists with the MSU-based Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station.
