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 The KORDES company alone has withdrawn more than 100 older varieties from their assortment which, to their opinion, are not competitive any longer.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.
David Austin or English Roses, combine the form, flower, fragrance and character of an Old Rose, with the wide range of colour and repeat flowering characteristics of modern Hybrid Tea and Floribunda roses. They also retain much of the busy, shruby growth of the old varieties. They vary enormously in regard to height and spread.
