Increasing environmental awareness and the need to eliminate the use of chemicals has led to a new philosophy in rose breeding. Many older rose varieties do not meet today’s requirements for disease resistance and abundance of flowers without the use of chemicals. Kordes’ have stopped the use of fungicides on their trial grounds allowing them to accurately assess each varieties characteristic. This has resulted in only the healthiest roses amongst the thousands on trial being released onto the market. The new philosophy of roses breeding has meant that in comparison older varieties are more susceptible to disease. As a result, older varieties are gradually being removed from the market to be replaced with more resistant new releases. If you are in search of roses that are beautiful, disease tolerant and easy to care for, look no further then Kordes' bred roses.
Each year we are continually amazed by the disease tolerance of our new releases and this year is no exception! We are very excited to introduce an excellent range of new releases for Australian gardens, each proving that new roses are healthy roses.
Included in our 2018 new releases is Madame Annisette, another fantastic addition to the new Parfuma® Collection by Kordes; the long awaited white climbing rose by Kordes, Climbing Future, another addition to the Climbing Max® Collection; and an exquite addition to the Fairytale Roses® Collection, Fairytale Magic, which demonstrates exceptional disease resistance with its many outstanding awards including the Golden Rose of Baden Baden in 2016.
We also have a newly decorated rose, Fire Opal, which was awarded Bronze Medal at the 2017 National Rose Trial Garden of Australia.
David Austin's have also added to their range this year with two beautiful roses The Lady Gardener and Thomas A Becket.
