Beautiful, classic, timeless: roses can suit any style of garden and will produce blooms from spring to autumn. There are hundreds of varieties to choose from, and many different shapes, colours, and sizes.

Our Top Varieties

We have hand-picked our top varieties for this year: our favourites and our best performers.

Dublin Bay

An utterly divine climbing rose with bright red floribunda blooms and a long-lasting bloom period that goes from mid-spring to late autumn, Dublin Bay is a must-have for anyone starting their rose journey.

Blue Moon

Beautiful lilac-mauve blooms nestled amongst green foliage, Blue Moon is possibly the best blue rose available. This delightful rose is highly fragrant and a repeat bloomer.

Blackberry Nip

Named after the liqueur and bred in New Zealand, the Blackberry Nip has gorgeous deep purple, seductively scented blooms, with gorgeous, healthy, and disease-resistant foliage.


Clusters of pure white blooms which just keep on flowering. Strong grower and disease resistant. An absolute classic and a New Zealand best seller as a standard rose.


One of the more flamboyant of roses, Friesia has bright yellow, non-fading petals and a surprisingly strong fragrance, and grow to a medium height.

Loving Memory

A perfectly formed, deep red rose that cluster around healthy, disease resistant foliage and produce a light perfume.

Supporting Breast Cancer Foundation NZ, this truly beautiful rose creates an outstanding, continuous display of soft pink cupped shaped blooms on a very compact bushy plant. $2 from the sale of each rose will be donated to BCFNZ.

Margaret Merril

A beautiful white petaled rose, accompanied by a blush pink sheen and a strong, sweet fragrance. This rose has a small compact growth habit, perfect for smaller gardens.
