Old World/Heritage Roses

Old World Rose

People have loved roses since antiquity (They have been mentioned in manuscripts more than 3,500 years old)

Flowers, hips, leaves and even thorns have attracted followers.

The beauty of past flowers is not diminished by modern rose developments - it is added to. There are classic beauties and representatives of diverse characteristics found in the rose world.

There is a place for history in every modern day garden
