About Us - OLD

Australia's leading rose supplier...

Treloar Roses have been supplying bare root rose plants Australia-wide for over 50 years.

More than a mail order rose company, we also supply many plant nurseries and specialist cut-flower growers all over the country.

Our large range and extensive production experience provides a reliable source of rose plants both directly to fellow rose lovers, and to the retail businesses that wish to serve them.

When can I get rose plants?

We supply our bare root rose plants from late May through to the end of August each year by mail order or pickup from our nursery here in Portland. Orders can be taken anytime of the year, however it is always good to get your order in early. An ideal time to place your order is when our annual 108 page colour catalogue is released at the end of March.
We also supply a selection of potted roses by mail order or for pick up from November through till March.

A brief history...

Treloar Roses was founded by the late Ted Treloar during the early 1960’s.

He started selling rose plants from his nursery located at the back of his fruit and vegetable shop.

Frustrated by the problems of obtaining newer releases and quality roses he purchased some land and began a life long career in growing roses.

His dedication to the industry and passion for roses saw the business grow into Australia’s leading rose nursery.

Mail Order

It was during the 1960’s that Ted saw the potential in sending bare root rose plants direct to customers by mail order as they travelled extremely well during the winter dormant season.

In 1966 he produced the first of the now famous colour catalogues and the mail order distribution has continued to grow every season since, supplying direct to the public and retail nurseries Australia wide.

Today we grow the largest range of roses offered by mail order in Australia.

Quality and service

Over the years Treloar Roses has built a reputation for supplying superior quality rose plants, backed by efficient and reliable service.

We encourage our customers to contact us if they find they are not totally satisfied with the quality of our stock and or our customer service.

Note also, that all our rose varieties are bud grafted onto virus tested rootstock.

New Releases

Today Treloar Roses are one of Australia’s primary rose introducers. Each year the best new releases from rose breeders world wide are presented to the public.

Every rose is trialled prior to release and assessed for their suitability to Australia’s climate.

Treloars have received numerous awards at the National Trial Garden of Australia.
