Only the best roses
We have searched the globe for the finest equatorial growers. Typically, we find them at least 8,000 feet above sea level, namely Ecuador, Columbia, Kenya and Ethiopia. Here they are exposed to the ideal sunlight and temperature to produce the finest large head roses on the planet, which will be sure to WOW your recipient.
Our florists finish each rose by hand, de-thorning, and carefully plucking its guard petals away to make sure it looks its best from the moment it is unpacked. For its longest life we cut the stem at an angle for extra water absorption and each individual stem even has its own water sachet (with pure New Zealand water) and flower food is provided, ensuring optimal life span and condition. When your roses arrive the buds will be pre bloom to ensure your recipient enjoys its longevity.
Since our Roses are grown 8,000 feet above sea level and carefully pruned to encourage each flower to grow to its full potential, they can reach around 65cm - 70cm long. The long stems help accentuate the roses natural beauty. Nothing can prepare you for the moment you receive long stemmed roses, it is truly breathtaking.

Our Australian-born founder, James Stevens, has lived and breathed roses from the day he was born. As a child, he would visit the vivacious Sydney flower markets with his father, buying stock for the family floristry business.
There, he watched as his father would bring joy and excitement to millions of commuters rushing home to their loved ones - and he knew this was what he wanted to do.
It was in the early 90's that James saw an opportunity in the new world of ecommerce for a business focused on roses. His concept of a brand known for its quality - "the Tiffany of flowers" - led to the creation of Roses Only.
"Roses Only is a luxury brand," James explains, with light in his twinkling eyes. "Our customers are discerning, and they trust us to source the best roses available, no matter where in the world they are grown.”
The quest for quality led James to look beyond Australia's seasonal trade - to Ecuador, Colombia and Kenya. There, he found immaculate perfection. The most genetically flawless roses, with longer stems, larger heads and intensely vivacious colors.
It is these impossibly perfect roses we are delighted to share with to our discerning customers.Under James’s guidance, Roses Only has become a household name all around the world. Our customers know that our unequivocal attention to detail and uncompromisingly high standards is what makes us so special.
