Contemporary Garden Concept

Naturosa® represents a selection of new, healthy, richly flowering roses. They have been extensively tested and received awards at several International rose competitions. They are ideal for planting in combination with perennials and are very easy to care for. 

Naturosa® roses fit very well into the contemporary garden concept. 

Naturosa® > Rosa La Belle Rouge

Ceci n’est pas une Rose

This is a variety of unique rose plants, whose miniature flowers don't have the traditional appearance of roses at all! They have been carefully chosen for both disease and climate resistance, floridity, user-friendliness and colour brilliance.

They are all on their own roots and fit perfectly at the front of perennial borders, flower beds, acting as ideal groundcover material. Like Naturosa, this is also a perect fit for contemporay garden design.

Ceci n’est pas une Rose > Rosa Mini Pinkie
