On a fine summer day you couldn't find a better place to go to enjoy the fragrance of magnificent flowers. The rose garden is the most popular part of the Wellington Botanic Garden. Situated on a plateau, the formal circular layout consists of 106 beds, each planted with a single variety of modern and traditional shrubs. Climbing roses cover a brick-and-timber colonnade on the perimeter. Adjacent to the rose beds, the Begonia House conservatory is filled with delicate plants and has a teahouse.
