2019 Rose Trial Awards

Treloar Roses Dominate Rose Trial Garden Awards!

We are pleased to say that this year we scooped a total of thirteen awards for rose varieties bred by Kordes Roses of Germany at the Australian National Rose Trial Garden awards in Adelaide.

Kordes Roses are one the world’s leading rose breeders and creators of garden roses. We have been the Australian Agent for Kordes for over 25 years and are responsible for importing, trialling and introducing their varieties onto the Australian market.

As the current Chairman of the National Rose Trial Garden of Australia, Kelvin Trimper, commented "Occasionally, one breeder dominates a rose trial competition". This year it was Kordes Roses, and as their Australian agent, Treloar Roses couldn’t be prouder!

"Increasingly we are seeing fantastic, healthy varieties coming out from Kordes. The National Rose Trials prove these top performing varieties are well suited to Australian conditions.” said Treloar Roses director, Gary Matuschka

The star of the show was the ‘Black Forest Rose’, which received an impressive four awards, including the top prize ‘Australian Rose of the Year’. After Treloar Roses saw its potential through their own trials they entered it into the National Rose Trials with much anticipation of the outcome.

“We were very excited to see ‘Black Forest Rose’ win the best rose of the trial. It is one of our top performing roses. Not only do these awards prove how great it is, the feedback we are starting to get from our customers is fantastic!”
said Gary.

Another highlight from the night was ‘Adorable’ winning the Most Fragrant Rose of the trial. Adorable was also awarded a Silver Medal and the coveted People’s Choice Award for 2019. “Fragrance is at the top of everyone’s wish list and ‘Adorable’ will not disappoint. We are thrilled to see it feature as part of our fragrant ‘Parfuma’ collection in 2020.” said Rachael Matuschka.

The thirteen awards consist of:

BLACK FOREST ROSE: Australian Rose of the Year, Gold Medal, Best Rose of Trial and Best Floribunda Rose
ADORABLE (2020 Release): Most Fragrant Rose of Trial, Silver Medal and People's Choice Award
MANDARIN (2021 Release): Silver Medal, Most Pest & Disease Tolerant Rose, Best Miniature / Mini Flora
