Plenty of Petals

The Rose Garden is at its peak, and if you don't get here now you're going to miss it. Roses will continue to bloom throughout the season, but never as many at the same time as right now.

With this many petals, and its delightful fragrance, how can you not love this rose?

You can find this small-flowered rose climbing the exterior walls of the Ring Garden.

These spicy-scented roses greet you as you descend into the Rose Garden from the Floral Walk.

Black Jade™ Rose
Black Jade™ Rose   Rosa 'BENblack'

While the flowers may be small, they are some of the darkest roses available. As the petals age, some turn shades of black-ish red.

Aloha Rose

This short climbing rose flowers freely and repeatedly.

While the Rose Garden does contain the majority of the roses at Red Butte Garden, you can also find a few everywhere else you go during your visit.
