The ANZAC Commemorative Rose Beds were planted in April, 2015. They are planted with roses that were introduced before 1920 - roses that were growing in the gardens of Guildford when soldiers and nurses left to serve, and roses that were growing when service men and women returned.
There is another garden of Heritage roses in the south eastern corner of Stirling Square. This garden was first planted in 2006 and is a repository of roses popular in the Guildford area in the decades leading up to the 2nd World War. Many of the roses grown in this garden have been propagated from venerable plants still thriving in older private gardens in Guildford. The 2006 garden will be enlarged in 2020- 21 to make a more complete collection of historic Guildford roses.
In addition, there is a rose bed at the South Western entrance to the Square which features well established plants of 'Monsieur Tillier', 'Cornelia' and 'Mutabilis'.
