I am looking for a rose not listed on the site

still not been able to locate the rose you are looking for, you
can always post a message in the Talk Roses Forum and ask for
assistance from our global community. New roses are added monthly but
if you can’t wait, we suggest that you contact one of the nurseries listed in

I want to ask a botanical question
The Talk Roses Forum is the ideal place to pose a botanical question.
Oftentimes the authors will visit the forum and answer questions so you
could get a more in depth answer than you had bargained for!

The advanced search will help you to locate a specific rose or range of roses based upon
criteria which you define. For example you can search for all roses which grow in certain
temperature zones, all roses which are fragrant or any mixture of criteria to allow
you to find the perfect rose!
Quick search & Keyword Search tips
The Quick Search and keyword search in the Advanced Search allow you to
find particular roses by entering in their name, synonym or a descriptive word.
The keyword search is tremendously powerful and a great way to
find special groups of roses. For example:
When searching for a rose try to just put up one word rather than the whole thing;
this avoids spelling errors due to French names or odd accents thus if you want to
find the rose ‘Dr Robert Korns’ better not to put the whole name in as you might
make a mistake like putting a full stop after the abbreviation Dr or even spelling
it out, much the best would be to put up only the word ‘Korns’.
- Try a year search; your birthyear, anniversary or other special year.
Just put in the year you wish to search e.g. 1954 will return all the roses introduced in that year.
- Many of our roses will have the breeder’s name. To search a breeders name
put up only the minimum e.g. ‘McGredy’ not ‘Sam McGredy’ as we often only refer to the last name.
- We have taken photographs in many of the worlds most
famous rose gardens and so by putting in a name like Huntington it will
tell you all the pictures on site that we have taken in that garden.
Also, to get the best results from your search avoid using the following in your keyword searches:

- inverted commas ‘’
- parenthesis ( )
- quotation marks “ ”
- Abbreviations such as R. for Rosa
