The National Rose Garden at Woolmers, near Longford, was opened in December, 2001 and contains about 4,000 roses. There are 480 “names” from 30 “families”. The site area is 1.53 hectares and for the rose lover, this is Rose Heaven!
When Val and I visited on Sunday it was quite overcast and the peak of the blooming season had well and truly past. Undaunted, we found many fine specimens and I’ve included some today. There is certainly a lot of source material here for artists!
We are very fortunate to have this garden in Tasmania, it is magnificent in every respect.
