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 The KORDES company alone has withdrawn more than 100 older varieties from their assortment which, to their opinion, are not competitive any longer.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.
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, 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.
