More than 830 people cast their votes from a selection of 23 roses over the weekend
of 7-8 April, but it was the gold flower with mid green glossy foliage floribunda named
‘Golden Beauty’ – bred by W Kordes & Son from Germany and introduced into Australia by Treloar Roses of Victoria; due for release for sale in 2020 – that came out on top.
This year the lucky winner was Sally Choo from the northern suburbs.
Those missed the People’s Choice Weekend can still see the roses, including the winner (in the bed marked 13), at the National Rose Trial Garden in the Botanic Gardens.
