Mottisfont Rose Gardens, United Kingdom
The walled abbey of the Mottisfont Abbey in Hampshire has become an ideal refuge for the National Collection of Old Varieties of Roses. The garden was created in the 1970s by Graham Stewart Thomas, who preserved the old paths, fruit trees and boxwood hedges. In addition to 500 varieties of roses, other plants were planted, including lavender and cat mint. Sorry, you can not take a picture of the smell – in the evenings in a fenced space there is a natural concert of fragrances. But here you can capture the largest UK platan.
Rosary Coloma Castle, Belgium
The former owners of the castle of Koloma, the county of Limburg-Sthtim, would certainly want to return to this world if they knew what a miracle had grown in their yard. The Rosary was founded in 1995 by the Flemish Society and became the largest in Europe: more than three thousand varieties, more than 65 thousand rose bushes planted in color. In a cafe at the castle, a pink ice cream is sold.
Roseraie du Val-de-Marne, France
The charming garden in L’Ee-le-Roz near Paris was laid at the end of the 19th century and is considered the first official rosary of the world – no other plants, except roses, are allowed to grow here. A collection of more than three thousand varieties is thematically divided into 13 sections, with the help of which the story of the cultivation of this flower is told. Local roses are trained to braid and climb to any garden shape – arches, turrets, pergolas.
Elizabeth Park Rose Garden, USA
The oldest rosary of America was created in Hartford, Connecticut, by Theodore Wirth. This is the first thing he did on the territory of the park entrusted to him by the city. “Because people will like it,” he said, and was absolutely right. In addition to hundreds of modern varieties of roses, old and rare varieties are carefully preserved here. From another picturesque nature in the park there are hothouses, a pond and a grove for picnics.
Butchart Gardens, Canada
The Butchart family has existed since the beginning of the 20th century and has been considered one of the most magnificent on the planet for a hundred years. Lots of walking up under the magnificently flowering arches of the rosary, visitors are sent to throw coins for luck in the well of wishes, and photographers – to look for the best angle of reflection in the steel garden ball, installed on one of the tracks. At the exit from this part of the garden is a bronze fountain brought from Florence with frolicking sturgeons.
Government Rose Garden, India
Keisei Rose Garden,Japan
Zijing Park, China
The Chinese raised roses when the European civilization was still in the nursery: they have been breeding here for at least a millennium. The rosary in Changzhou attracts visitors not only with plantations – in May there is a festival, flower shows, competitions for the best photo, thematic theater performances and a selection of top-ten beautiful varieties.
