Capitol Park rose garden prepared for its close-ups

Drought or number drought, Capitol Park’s roses are prepared for wedding season.

One of Sacramento’s most romantic places, the park’s World Peace Rose Garden burst into early bloom in early April.

“The blooming extravaganza is happening right presently in the State Capitol World Peace Rose Garden,” said T. J. David, the garden’s co-creator. “It is a must-see experience. This year, the blooms are about a week early, too.”

Featuring more than six hundred seventy-five bushes in about one hundred sixty-five varieties, the Victorian-style landmark on sixteenth Str in Capitol Park is a favorite spot for proposals and weddings. Offering living bouquets, fragrant roses are arranged around a heart-shaped seating wall and covered patio, close a charming fountain and benches. Printed on stone markers, inspirational messages speak of peace and love.

Hundreds of weddings have been held in the rose garden, David noted. Because the garden is located in a state historic park, event permits and date reservations are handled by the CA Hwy Patrol. The rose garden is available for more than weddings, too.

“The State Capitol CHP makes reservations for weddings and events in the World Peace Rose Garden,” David said. “It is a no-charge permit process in which you submit your information to the CHP for approval.”

In most cases, it’s first come, first reserved. For details and rose garden reservations, visit .

While lawn may be coming out following to the Capitol building, the World Peace Rose Garden has kept its lush looks, thanks to concerned water and soil management by David and Capitol Park staff. David’s drought-busting secret? Water-absorbing granules that keep moisture longer in the soil. He also uses abundant mulch for moisture conservation and a micro-jet irrigation system.

Meanwhile, the Capitol Park rose garden will soon have a new sister. A dedication is planned May twenty-six for the Univ Park World Peace Rose Garden at CA and Magnolia streets in Stockton. For details, see .

Historic camellia saved

For generations of Sacramento babies, a majestic camellia stood look exterior the entrance at Sutter Memorial Hospital. For many infants (particularly those born in Feb or early March), it may have been the first flower they ever saw.

Now, that – believed by hospital staff to be the oldest camellia in Sacramento – will obtain a new residence in the new Sutter Park housing development planned for the hospital’s former site. The elderly Sutter Memorial closed on Aug. eight, two thousand fifteen, and the site will keep up to one hundred twenty homes.

Recently, work crews gingerly dug out the roots of the tree-size heritage camellia. With a crane, the enormous shrub was gently lifted out of the ground. The Sutter Hospital camellia then relocated to a nearby nursery, where it'll be safely kept until it can be transplanted back to close the same space it's grown for almost eighty years.

“We are very pleased to rescue this city treasure and are working with the developer of the Sutter Park neighborhood, StoneBridge Properties, to ensure that it's transplanted safely for future generations to enjoy,” said Label Schaefer, helper administrator for Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento.

The exact age of this shrub is uncertain, but it’s at minimum a cent old, according to hospital staff. Dr. A. R. Boscoe, a Sacramento obstetrician, donated the already large bush to the then-new Sutter Maternity Hospital when it opened in one thousand nine hundred thirty-seventh. At that time, the camellia was moved about a obstruct from its original location at twenty-eighth and K streets.

Sutter Hospital history notes this camellia “has been identified as the oldest living camellia in Sacramento.” That makes it a beautiful special plant in the “Camellia City.”
