The National Capital Authority is managing the replacement of rose name signage in the Old Parliament House Gardens.

Over 640 granite name sign plaques have been installed, assisting visitors, staff and volunteers alike to identify the roses.

The signs include:

  • Name of the rose
  • The rose breeder
  • The date the rose was bred or discovered
  • Type of rose, and
  • Symbol(s) that indicates rose care information (season to prune, whether to prune the hops)

There are 75 more granite rose name plaques to be installed once the identification and details of the roses are confirmed in November 2021.

The teams of horticultural volunteers, providing an invaluable service in caring for the roses, were consulted during the design process of the signs. The Patronage signs in each of the gardens were updated to include a message to acknowledge the volunteers service and contribution that volunteers continue to make in the rose gardens.
