Rose of the YearRose Of The Year Award Winners

Find yourself an award winning rose, with our selection of Rose Of The Year Award Winners!

What is the Rose Of The Year Award?

Rose of the Year has been around since 1982, awarded by the British Association of Rose Breeders and the British Group of the HTA to the best of the best.

Rose breeders are invited to submit what they consider to be the best of their up and coming varieties into the competition, which are then put through growing trials to decide the winner. Trials last for two years and are judged by both amateurs and professionals. They are conducted throughout the UK, from Aberdeen to Hampshire, and Northern Ireland to East Anglia, to further ensure all the varieties are trialed in different soil and climate conditions.

This prestigious award highlights excellent varieties of Roses, with excellent growing, disease resistance, and, of course, beautiful flowers.

Where Can I Find Rose Of The Year Award Winners?

A full list of winners can be found on the Roses UK site, a website run by the BARB, and who also manage the Gold Standard awards.

A selection of the winners are on display at Roath Park in Cardiff, but if that is too far to travel, you could get your own selection of Rose of the Year award winners from us here at English Roses! We currently stock 20 varieties of past winners, and we deliver nationally (excluding highlands and islands). Treat yourself or a loved one to a spectacular rose!
