Treloar Roses have been supplying bare root rose plants Australia-wide for over 40 years. Our large range and extensive production experience provides a reliable source of rose plants both directly to fellow rose lovers, and to the retail businesses that wish to serve them.
Treloar Roses was founded by the late Ted Treloar during the early 1960’s. He started selling rose plants from his nursery located at the back of his fruit and vegetable shop. Frustrated by the problems of obtaining newer releases and quality roses he purchased some land and began a life long career in growing roses. His dedication to the industry and passion for roses saw the business grow into Australia’s leading rose nursery.
It was during the 1960’s that Ted saw the potential in sending bare root rose plants direct to customers by mail order as they travelled extremely well during the winter dormant season. In 1966 he produced the first of the now famous colour catalogues and the mail order distribution has continued to grow every season since, supplying direct to the public and retail nurseries Australia wide. Today we grow the largest range of roses offered by mail order in Australia.
Today Treloar Roses are one of Australia’s primary rose introducers. Each year the best new releases from rose breeders world wide are presented to the public. Every rose is trialled prior to release and assessed for their suitability to Australia’s climate. Treloar' s have received numerous awards at the National Trial Garden of Australia.
