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.
The PARFUMA® collection from Kordes showcases roses with extraordinary fragrance and exceptional health.
Resulting from a change during Kordes breeding program over 20 years ago, where they moved away from pesticide and fungicide usage. Only the strongest most vigorous and floriferous specimens emerge, to then be selected from as release candidates for the rest of us to enjoy in our gardens.
Far too often it is believed that modern roses lack fragrance or that fragrant roses are not healthy. With this collection we can demonstrate this is not the case.
A combination of extraordinary perfume and exceptional health, Parfuma® roses create a sensual experience for the eyes and nose.
