Antique Rose Emporium


The Antique Rose Emporium, located in Brenham, Texas, is a great place to visit if you like roses.  The Emporium is the display gardens of a retail nursery that specializes in old roses.  It features a Victorian home with plenty of rose gardens, a cottage garden, an herb garden, a cactus garden, lovely ponds, and a tribute to Queen Mary's garden in London.


The gardens are open Monday through Saturday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, and on Sundays from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM.  Admission is free, and of course there are roses for sale that you can purchase and take home to create your own rose garden.

  1. Love the idea of an "antique" plant, especially if it's a rose. Looks like a wonderful place to visit.

  2. I'll have to get a map and figure out where Brennan is located. Texas is so darn big, but if this is a few hours away - I see a weekend trip in my future. Thanks for the discovery

    1. I'm going to feature quite a few gardens from Texas, so hopefully you'll find some to visit.

  4. If its free I'll take two! We have Japanese gardens close to us that the wife and kids like to go to. It just takes all those concerns of life and melts them away.

  5. I love growing roses. They're so easy and you more you cut them back the more they like it!

    1. That's true. I couldn't believe how my roses came back after cutting them down so low!

  6. So grateful for this post and pictures on a day when Chicago is in an arctic freeze. Thanks for sharing. Now, if only when it gets warm I can actually grow some roses this year. My poor bourbenais rose seems to have died last summer.

    1. Seeing gardens on a cold winter day certainly lifts the spirits!

  7. That's a great idea. I bet their garden helps sell a lot of roses.
