Formal rose beds have been a feature in Hermann Park since the earliest plans were made for the Houston Garden Center in the late 1930’s. These re-designed rose beds feature a broad range of antique roses: found garden roses, polyanthas, Chinas, Bourbons, teas, climbers, and roses which have received the coveted ‘Earth-kind’ designation. Earth-kind roses, tested by the Texas AgriLife Extension service, have demonstrated superior pest tolerance along with outstanding landscape performance and reduced maintenance.
