W. KORDES' SÖHNE is one of the leading breeders and producers of rose plants for garden roses and cut roses in the world. Over 20 years ago KORDES stopped the use of fungicides on their trial grounds, where new breedings were evaluated years before their introduction on the market. This meant it was possible to accurately assess and select the truly healthy varieties amongst the thousands of seedlings on trial. This new breeding philosophy has been noticeable to all rose lovers around the world. The KORDES company alone has withdrawn more than 100 older varieties from their assortment which, to their opinion, are not competitive any longer. This has made way for new, better and healthier varieties.
If you are in search of roses that are beautiful, disease tolerant and easy to care for, look no further then Kordes' bred roses.

ABOUT THE NATIONAL ROSE TRIAL GARDEN OF AUSTRALIA AWARDS
The National Rose Trial Garden of Australia is based in Adelaide, with rose trials conducted over a two year period. During this time, each variety is assessed fourteen times by a team of ten independent assessors drawn from all forms of gardening. The criteria for judging includes habit, health, flowering, pest & disease tolerance and fragrance. The scores are then converted to a percentage for the purpose of determining awards.
Our released 2017 awards winners are listed below. Potted roses are available for shipping now, on selected varieties.
