“Roses, Roses, and More Roses”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

So many roses it was hard to select just two. Reference material available for the novice gardener, as well as the more advanced. Plants are presented in varying ways to give visitors ideas on how to enhance their own gardens.

“Fabulous collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

I wish we had gone to the Antique Rosé Emporium a day or two sooner. The temperature had dropped from the mid 80's to the low 60's the morning we want and the wind was howling. Still we stayed for at least an hour walking the grounds, admiring so many plants we'd never seen before. I can't begin to tell you many varieties of roses they have.

We were with an antique car group and so didn't buy anything, but since we are only about an hour away, we will definitely go back when we are ready to buy things to plant.

The staff were,extremely helpful and knowledgable. The grounds were impressive, even on a cold windy day.

“Must do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

So beautiful and relaxing just to stroll through the gardens. Even if you aren't wanting to buy a plant (you will be by the time you leave though) it is a pleasant half hour to hour just walking around.

“A unique experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

So beautiful. I didn't know there were so many kinds of roses that would grow in Central Texas. The grounds are laid out for a lovely stroll; I got awesome photos that I still enjoy today. This is a great weekend afternoon outing.

“Plant lovers paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

The emporium has just about every variety of rose known to mankind plus lots of other interesting plants for sale. The grounds are beautiful. After strolling and buying at the nursery it is fun to eat at the Brenham airport diner.
