Meet the winners of Alexandra Farms’ fifth-annual garden rose design.

For the fifth consecutive year, Alexandra Farms—the premier grower of premium garden roses in the world—hosted its highly anticipated “Garden Rose Design Contest.” This annual event invites floral designers and flower lovers alike from around the world to showcase their creative talents and technical skills using spectacular garden roses. Entrants were permitted to incorporate other types of flowers, as well, if they chose.

This year, the two design categories were “Wedding Work” and “Everyday Design,” and designers could enter either category or both. Here are the 2022 winners and their winning designs!
