Queen Mary’s Rose Gardens is one of the most beautiful places to see in London and enjoy the unmistakable smell of roses. This rose park is the most abundant rose garden in London. Surprisingly roses growing in the garden are not well documented. Queen Mary’s Rose Garden does not have a map of rose plantings, so it can be hard to make sure that you saw all of them during your visit or recall the name of the rose that you liked in the garden after your visit. So I created the complete list of roses growing at Queen Mary’s Rose Gardens in 2022.

Rose gardens are within the inner circle of Regent’s Park (along with the open-air theatre). Queen Mary’s Gardens opened in 1932 and is London’s largest collection of roses. The rose planting was renewed by the landscape architects, Colvin and Moggridge, in the 1990s. According to the Royal Parks website they planted 12,000 roses inside the garden and 85 different varieties. But there are also many other beautiful flowers, including about 9,000 begonias. And the shrubbery is all planted to give you a sense that you have some seclusion from busy London. In a word, it’s a flower lover’s paradise.

The Complete List Of Roses growing at the Queen Mary’s Rose Gardens

The complete list contains over 100 varieties of roses growing at Queen Mary’s Rose Gardens. Please note that it contains the names of all labelled roses in the garden, and there are some roses in the garden that did not have name plates during my visit, so their names are not captured in this article. I hope this list will help you plan your visit and find your favourite rose among so many beautiful ones in this delightful park!
