Only 5 kms from the centre of Renmark, Ruston's Rose Garden is open to the public every day except Christmas Day and Good Friday.


The garden is a rose lovers paradise with more than 50,000 rose bushes of nearly 4,000 varieties, making the collection one of the largest, most diverse and important in the world.


Grown outdoors in the warm, dry climate of South Australia's Riverland region, Ruston's have managed to retain the magnificent and distinctive scents in their roses, so often lost when they are grown indoors.


The collection includes modern garden roses such as hybrid teas, floribundas, miniatures and ground covers, old garden roses including gallicas, damasks, centifolias, mosses, bourbons, teas, noisetts, hybrid perpetuals, musks and rugosas as well as a number of species roses.


Most of the varieties produce six flushes each year, starting with the spectacular spring flush at the end of September. With modern horticultural practices, the roses can be kept blooming until well into winter, giving a nine-month season.
