We recently talked to you about Parc de Bagatelle, where nature claimed its rights. Today, it’s the home of one of the marvels in the Parisian west: la Roseraie de Bagatelle (or Bagatelle’s Rose Garden).
A century old rose garden
A work from the French landscape architect Jean-Claude-Nicolas Forestier (1861-1930), Bagatelle’s Rose Garden opened in 1907. At the time, he was the “Parks and gardens from the City of Paris“ curator, in the role of city planner. Afterwards, this place became one of the most reputable and well-known rose gardens in the world. It shelters 1 100 types of roses.
An international competition
Every year in June, the international competition of new roses is organized, dedicated to new types of rose bushes. In 1983, a second rose garden was built in the north part of Parc de Bagatelle, designated for landscape rose bushes. Another competition takes place for that matter in order to reward these rustic rose bushes.
