What is a Heritage Rose?

Growing Roses in Perth

A Passion For Old Roses & Their Alluring History

Heritage Roses in Australia Inc. began with an informal structure of people who were fascinated with old roses that had survived in the gardens of our early settlers or brought to Australia by enterprising nurserymen from the UK, France or Europe to fill the gardens with memories of “home”.

Some of these old roses we find today, growing in abandoned farms, cemeteries and roadsides.

The Perth Region is a branch of Heritage Roses in Australia Inc., a national organisation that is represented in New South Wales, Queensland, ACT, Victoria, Tasmania and WA with a National Executive that represents these states. You can visit our parent site HERE.
