Greenwich Park Rose Garden

Ranger’s House dates from c.1700 and was built for a sea captain, Vice Admiral Francis Hosier. The house overlooks Blackheath and backs on to Greenwich Park. It is possible to visit the house, but only on a guided tour. The rose garden is in the Park and is filled with wonderful things.

These stunning roses in the rose garden at Greenwich Park are called Michèle Meilland, but after searching on the internet I wonder if they are actually Francis Meilland?
