Portland roses are a small but important group of old roses with amazing scent. They grow very well in the shelter and micro climate of our 18th century walled garden in Scotland. In the mid 19th century, 84 varieties of Portland roses were recorded at Kew. So far we have identified 30 distinct varieties, available today. Partial disabled access.
