Collection of Alba-Roses - we hope to find all kind of Alba-Roses existing all over the world. Perhaps we will find some more than the about 20 roses that are available yet, because I can´t believe that more than 200 Alba-roses have been lost during the last centuries! If you have got an Alba that you cannot identify, please contact me!
I started this projekt in 2007 and in the moment (2014), there are about 190 Albas to look at and to compare to each other.
I´ve also started a project to try to identify all "Old Garden Roses" that are striped or mottled and I also collect and compare the very dark, violet or purple-red OGRs. In this project more than 150 roses "take part".
Collection of Found Roses - to identify found roses it is often necessary to plant them together with the rose you believe it could be and then compare them many years. In February 2014 there are about 300 unknown roses you could help to identify.
I personally like the "blue" and brown roses and so there are a lot of this rarities, too. And I am interested in interesting roses of non-professional rose breeders, so there are a lot of them in the Rosengarten Reinhausen, too.
In 2014 there are about 2200 roses in the park that is about 12.000 m².
