Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden

In 2008 Peter Kukielski, curator of what has long been lauded as one of the most beautiful rose gardens in America, has started the phenomenal transformation of this rose garden with the aim of increased disease resistance and decreased chemical dependence.

       

         

Below is a list of roses which, according to Peter Kukielski, are found to be superior in health for the New York climate. The list is sorted by type and then alphabetically by name.  This is a group rating not an individual rose evaluation.
