Rose Romance 2019


  • Stop and smell the roses as you take a stroll through a romantic European garden setting adorned with over 40 varieties of roses in myriad hues of red, pink, orange, yellow and white. These are not your garden variety roses, but a spectacular medley of hybrids rarely seen in this part of the world. There is Princess Anne, a fragrant, deep pink rose named for British royalty; Lady of Shalott, which bears the name of the classic Tennyson poem and produces stunning salmon-pink blooms; and the surprising Angèle Pernet, with its whimsical and unusual colour gradation. These lovely blooms trail down from trellises and arches, flourish amidst magnificent ruins reminiscent of castles of long ago, and surround a tower where Juliet on her balcony is wooed by Romeo in the courtyard below.

Stroll along our romantic European garden landscape

Romance is in the air as the Flower Field transforms into a European garden, with our elegant trellis path, magnificent ruins and a tower reminiscent of the one in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet!

The French Art of Trelliage

The French Art of Trelliage

  • Made from an open framework or lattice of interwoven or intersecting pieces of wood or metal, trelliage rose to unseen heights of artistry in the 17th century. Many climbing rose varieties require a trellis to reach their potential. See how this brings a sense of grandeur and elegance to the Flower Field!

Rose Oil Distillation

Rose Oil Distillation

  • Rose oil is the essential oil extracted from the petals of various types of roses. Containing the flower’s aromatic compounds, it is used for its health benefits, and also diluted to make perfume. Get the chance to take in the aroma of the roses at the still on display!

Juliet's Tower

Juliet's Tower

The famous “balcony scene” in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet sees Romeo sneaking into the orchard garden of Juliet’s family house and overhearing her at her window vowing her love to him. She wishes Romeo bore a family name other than Montague, her family’s sworn enemy, and laments that a rose would smell just as sweet if it were called by any other name.

Imagine the star-crossed lovers professing their love for one another at Juliet’s tower, the centrepiece of the Flower Field!


What's blooming

Named after the Latin word rosa, the rose is a flowering shrub belonging to the family of plants called Rosaceae. With over a hundred species and thousands of cultivars, its blooms vary in size and shape, and come in many different colours, from the well-known red, to yellow, white and purple, just to name a few. Feast your eyes with the variety of roses you'll see at Flower Dome!

Princess Anne

Princess Anne

  • This richly flowering rose, named after the Princess Royal, who is Queen Elizabeth’s second child and only daughter, produces blooms that start out in a pink so deep that it is almost red, which then fades into a paler shade. Each fragrant flower has unusually substantial petals, with a hint of yellow on their undersides.

Ely Cathedral

Ely Cathedral

  • Named after the cathedral in Cambridgeshire in England that is recognised as one of the “Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages”, this variety produces outstanding red ruffled blooms.

Lady of Shalott

Lady of Shalott

  • An example of famed British rosarian David Austin’s numerous literary references in naming his roses, this striking rose has salmon-pink outer petals that contrast beautifully with golden-yellow undersides. It has a tea fragrance with hints of spiced apple and cloves. The Lady of Shalott is a classic poem by Lord Alfred Tennyson, about a cursed lady who lives in a castle near King Arthur’s Camelot.

Angèle Pernet

Angèle Pernet

  • This two-tone hybrid tea rose with interesting colour gradation was introduced in 1924.
