During November the Rogers Rose Garden is the prettiest jewel in the Hamilton Gardens. The garden tells the story of the development of the modern rose through a series of gardens including the New Zealand Rose of the Year Trial beds.
The Pacific Rose Bowl Festival showcases the Rogers Rose Garden for 4 days, while gathering public votes to award the winners of the 2019 New Zealand Rose of the Year.
Your vote counts. Simply choose your 5 favourite roses.
By voting for your favourite roses you could win your very own New Zealand Rose of the Year rose bush. There's a winner every day, plus the children win a gardening voucher for their school. See some past winners from 2011-2014 below.
You be the judge!

We’re adjusting our electorate boundaries for the next two general elections.
By making sure each electorate has about the same number of people, we can give all New Zealanders equal representation in Parliament. It’s all balance.
If we move one of your electorate boundaries, you could end up in a different electorate to the one you’re in now – so we show you what we’re proposing before we make any changes and give you the opportunity to share your thoughts.
