The Garden Rose Gallery


Probably the most popular garden roses of today are those with strong fragrance, huge petal counts and large flower heads. There are many varieties like this for today’s gardens bred by major houses like David Austin Roses from England, Rosen Tantau from Germany, and Meilland from the south of France.

Until recently, none of these “Garden Varieties” were available as cut flowers because these roses tend to have a poor shelf and vase life. Lately however, major hybridizers have made an effort to breed garden varieties with better shelf and vase life resulting in those few varieties available selectively today.

I hope you enjoy the images of these incredibly beautiful garden roses, I only wish I could share their scents with you!

Many of these varieties look like English Garden Roses and evoke the same sort of romance and class. They are not all the same in terms of fragrance nor performance, but most will perform as long in a vase as will a hybrid tea, and bloom to a much larger size than would be expected when first unwrapped. The fragrance they put off is low but evident. A few of these do grow well as sprays, but the majority are singles.
