Take a piece of Centennial Park home

The fragrance always stays in the hand that gives the rose.
George William Curtis

With over 140 rose varieties and 7800 individual rose bushes located within our park, it’s no wonder Centennial Park is renowned for its picturesque rose gardens. Centennial Park takes pride in ensuring our rose gardens offer a bouquet of floral aromas and spectacular visual displays.

Every year Centennial Park propagates new roses to ensure the up keep of our memorial gardens for memorial roses that have died or which are struggling to grow, thus ensuring families continue to enjoy the memorial that they originally purchased.

This year, Centennial Park has propagated additional young potted roses, so you can have the unique opportunity to take a piece of Centennial Park home with you.

Select assortments of young potted roses are available; with colours vary from deep crimson to apricot. Perfumed and non-perfumed varieties are also on offer.

Stock is limited. Collection of potted roses is available only on July 21 between 2.30pm – 5.30pm. Payment on collection is required.

All roses have been potted for your convenience.
