Ludwig’s Roses celebrates its 50th anniversary this month and behind it all is Ludwig Taschner’s love affair with the rose, and his passion to share its beauty with as many people as possible.
Known to many as South Africa’s Mr Rose, Ludwig has introduced more than 500 new varieties of roses, including many that he has bred himself. He has travelled the length and breadth of the country giving talks, workshops and judging rose shows.
Ludwig’s Roses began in 1971 with a small start-up rose nursery on the rose farm outside Pretoria and has since grown to five dedicated rose outlets in Gauteng, the Western and Southern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal.
Join the celebrations at Ludwig’s Rose Farm, north of Pretoria on March 21 and 22 (all health protocols observed) and collect a free Golden Anniversary souvenir catalogue from any of Ludwig’s Roses outlets countrywide.
