Abstract: An exploration was undertaken during the month of April 2008 to collect variations available in wild, naturalized and cultivated forms of rose belong to the genus Rosa. The exploration team comprised of scientists from three organizations NBPGR Regional Station, Shimla, Indian Institute of Horticultural Research, Bangalore Karnataka and Institute of Himalayan Bioresources Technology, Palampur, Himachal Pradesh. The areas covered during the exploration belong to Zone VI of Himachal Pradesh (NW Sub-Himalayan and high altitude Himalayan Region). Sampling for specific traits, selective sampling was made. Random sampling was made in case of wild population of high altitude plants with the aim of making them acclimatize under Shimla condition as a first step. Forty two accessions belong to 16 different species were collected during the exploration. The collected species include, Rosa multiflora Rosa brunonii, Rosa moschata, Rosa chinensis, Rosa beggeriana, Rosa gallica, Rjosa laevigata, Rosa x alba, Rosa ax fortuniana, Rosa fortida, Rosa banksiae, Rjosa macrophnylla, Rosa sericea, Rosa wichuraiana, Rosa x borboniana and Rosa 'Hybrida'. Role of women and local people in conservation, utilization of plant diversity and holding associated indigenous knowledge was well witnessed in all the area covered. Most of the houses were decorated with modern cultivars of rose in their home garden while the obsolete cultivars find place in boundaries, field ends, as live fence, a roadside which is a healthy sign in terms of conservation. Overall we could find about 50 different types of cultivated roses averaging 3-4 types per house in all those areas surveyed. The details of the Physiography, Agro-climatic conditions and common vegetation of the area surveyed. Nature and extent of diversity, variability patterns, breeding potential of collected genotypes and other important issues were illustrated in this paper.
