Kordesii Roses and their hybrids including explorer roses, propagated and grown by Azalea House Flowering Shrub Farm with links to pictures (when available). Kordesii roses were the result of crossing a Rosa wichuranna (Memorial Rambler Rose) with a Rugosa Rose (both species are disease resistant). This class is often healthier and hardier than other modern roses. Two pictures for each variety, click on either and you will see a larger image. One picture may show how many there are noted on a green dot. Want to purchase? email me. Last edited 10/25/2011. If these pictures dont open click here.
