Wagner’s Rose Nursery™ is one of the largest and longest running rose nurseries in Australia.
What is an old fashioned rose?
It’s a great question, and not easy to answer, in one sense they can be the true Old Roses, Species, and wild roses, but there have been many new or modern roses bred to look like the roses of long ago, that have strong and unusual scents, and flower for much longer periods.
While many a rose nursery have moved away from old fashioned roses in favour of growing a smaller range of popular roses, here at Wagner’s we have grown our list and are constantly adding to it as we feel that these beautiful roses deserve their rightful place alongside the more popular types and varieties. English breeder David Austin has been a prolific breeder of old fashioned type varieties and we should all be grateful for his contribution to this wonderful type of rose.
Here you will find our entire collection of old fashioned roses, many with amazing names like Frau Dagmar Hartopp, Gruss an Aachen and Ispahan to name a very few. And wonderful, unusual blooms like Agnes, Carabella, Dainty Bess and Hansa . . . Enjoy them all!
