Old Garden Roses, also known as antique roses, are a group of roses that have been cultivated before the introduction of the first Hybrid Tea rose in 1867. These roses are known for their fragrance, beauty, and historical significance. Some varieties of Old Garden Roses, such as the Gallica and Alba roses, bloom only once a year in the spring or early summer, making their blooms all the more special. These roses have a wide range of colors and growth habits, from tall shrubs to climbers to compact bushes. The Old Garden Roses have played a significant role in the development of modern roses, and many new cultivars have been created by crossing Old Garden Roses with modern varieties.
