We traveled here from Austin in late April while the wildflowers were in bloom. We decided to take the country roads and I am so happy we did. The trip and the Antique Rose Emporium were such magical places. The roses are all $18.95, which is a real deal and the selection is overwhelming. They have pink, red, orange, green,... More

Lots of roses and other flowering plants for purchase. Many gardens and places to wander around. Even has a chapel and outdoor reception area for weddings. Nice place to spend some time and pick up something for your flower beds. Prices were reasonable.

This emporium is located on Texas 50; parking is in a dirt lot. The place is a horticulturalists’ and rosarians’ bonanza. It primarily displays and sells antique roses,which are available in many shades of pink, mauve, red, white, orange, and yellow. There are taller rose shrubs and shorter ones, thorny roses and nearly thornless ones. They’re all here! The sprawling... More

Spent a hour or so at this place today. We stopped at the end of the day, otherwise I would have spent more time. Great gardens and displays of 1,000's of different plants it seemed. If you are in the Brenham, Washington on the Brazos or Chappel Hill area, make this a stop

I love this place. I take the kids there regularly and have since they were tiny. In fact this has been one of my favorite places to photograph them. It is beautiful. There are plenty of places to explore and look around. The early homes on site offer some history and fun for the kids. And of course there are... More

This is a fun place to take family and friends from out of town. Such a great variety of roses, herbs and flowers and they're helpful in letting you know what's best for you. Very well-maintained and the purple in the garden - the fences, etc. are so cute - my sisters both went back to Denver and copied that!

So many roses it was hard to select just two. Reference material available for the novice gardener, as well as the more advanced. Plants are presented in varying ways to give visitors ideas on how to enhance their own gardens.

I wish we had gone to the Antique Rosé Emporium a day or two sooner. The temperature had dropped from the mid 80's to the low 60's the morning we want and the wind was howling. Still we stayed for at least an hour walking the grounds, admiring so many plants we'd never seen before. I can't begin to tell... More
