"There is simply the rose: it is perfect in every moment of its existence."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Celebrating the Romance, Beauty
& Fascination of Heritage Roses
A Passion For Old Roses & Their Alluring History
Heritage Roses in Australia 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 the Heritage Roses in Australia, a national organisation that is represented in New South Wales, Queensland, Canberra, Victoria, Tasmania and WA with a National Executive that represents these states. You can visit our parent site HERE.
