Qingdao Rose Garden is located on South Terrace, Adelaide, Sth. Aust. "The rose garden celebrates the relationship between the City of Adelaide and the City of Qingdao in China.   The statue "Song of the Wind" which forms the centrepiece of the garden, was donated by the Qingdao Municipal People’s Government. The original version of the statue stands in the Little Qingdao Park in the City of Qingdao, China. The young girl, holding an ancient Chinese harp – Konghou, plays the symphony of the sea and the city. The two statues echo each other across the seas, bonding the friendship between Qingdao and Adelaide. The red roses symbol life and celebration in Chinese culture. 
The City of Qingdao rose was bred and donated by George Thomson, a renowned South Australian rose hybridist.

Purple Breeze® rose belongs among the deepest coloured varieties available today. It is a floribunda type rose bred by NIRP International, France, and introduced as Purple Rain in 2017, and only one year later renamed to PURPLE BREEZE®. It produces 8-10 cm large, semi-double, cup-shaped flowers of deep purple violet colour. Almost no perfume. They come out repeatedly from late June until late October. Deciduous leaves are dark green, glossy, and healthy unless the summer is rainy and too humid, then a treatment against powdery mildew may be necessary. The variety forms an upright shrub 70-80 cm tall.   Planting instructions: Prepare a hole of size 30x30 cm. Put your rose in the way that the grafting point is 3 cm deep in the soil. Water well and cover new shoots with soil or bark mulch about 15 cm high. Roses tolerate wide range of soils but thrive in deep, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil, in full sun.  Pruning: Cut the branches in half in autumn and prune hard to 3-5 live buds in spring after danger of frosts. During the flowering season prune flowered stems regularly and follow a regular feeding programme.

Bees' Paradise Rose® Bicolour 
These little gems with bright golden stamens attract the bees to your garden and also create a lovely display. Bees’ Paradise Bicolour features clusters of salmon pink flowers with a soft, yellow centre fading to pastel shades as the bloom ages. The bush grows to approximately 60cm with healthy, glossy, dark green foliage and exhibits robust disease resistance. Landscape roses are quickly becoming a gardener’s favourite - low maintenance, hardy and compact dense growth makes them ideal for gardens large or small, or in any landscaping situation. Spent blooms are self-cleaning and deadheading is not necessary but give them a tidy up if desired. The bushes will flower almost continuously right through the growing season until pruning time. This rose is well suited to mass planting, borders, rockeries and cottage gardens or as a container plant.
