The Rose Gardens at Hamilton Gardens
A part-view of the Rose Gardens which make up a big part of the prized Hamilton Gardens. There are many different named rose varieties here, and many are valued varieties grown by Sam McGredy, world renowned rose grower and breader, originally from Ireland and now living in New Zealand. His roses include names such as the pink Sexy Rexy and the red climber Dublin Bay.

Some of his later roses received New Zealand names, such as Aotearoa.
