For the love of roses

Lovers of roses should head straight to Waihui Garden. Within the 1-hectare garden you’ll find over 170 roses, including floribunda, hybrid-teas, climbers, old- fashioned and David Austen roses.
You enter the rose garden through knot gardens shaped with hedges and planted up with roses, such as ‘Summer Dream’ and ‘Sunny Honey’ in a palette of pinks and apricots. The main rose garden is circular and arranged in a colour wheel presenting you with a rainbow of colours around the garden. As well as roses, you can see planting combinations of flaxes, hebes and rhododendrons bringing together the best of classically inspired gardens with more naturalistic planting. The formality of the roses within the knot gardens contrasts with the waterfall rose ‘Sanders White’ climbing majestically through trees in a carefree unrestrained manner. The owners wanted to create a garden that could be viewed and enjoyed from the living room of the farmhouse and standing on the terrace you can see they achieved just that. Waihui Garden is proof that a love for roses can be the inspiration for creating a beautiful garden.
