Paul Zimmerman Roses

Budding The Rose Grower In All Of Us

Our Story

Paul Zimmerman Roses was started around one simple message. Roses are nothing more than flowering shrubs and that’s how you should use, and treat them. Through design, consulting on care, writing, lectures and workshops our goal is to make roses less intimidating. I hope you enjoy our website. If you have rose questions please contact us via our Facebook Page. Happy Roseing!


Join Paul as he leads the Rose Garden Tour of A Lifetime

Come join me for seven days of touring gardens and workshops in England. We start in the south with among others the legendary gardens Sissinghurst and Mottisfont. We end at David Austin Roses Nursery for a behind the scenes peek at the nursery, a tour of Mr. Austin's private garden and even a hybridizing workshop! We will be joined for parts of the tour by my friends Richard Beales and Michael Marriott. Boxwood Tours organized it all and it will be jolly fun! We are limiting the tour to just 24 people so make your reservation quickly.

Meet Paul

Paul Zimmerman has been working with, and teaching about, garden roses for close to twenty-five years. While living in Los Angeles Paul ran his own rose care and rose garden design company. After moving to the upstate of South Carolina he founded Ashdown Roses, which was a rose nursery that offered a wide array of garden roses. Paul closed the nursery in 2010 to focus on garden desing, consulting, writing and speaking. He consults to both public and private gardens on sustainable care and designing gardens grown around roses.
