And at the Botanical Garden

Created in 1976, to mark the Olympic Games, the Montréal Botanical Garden’s Rose Garden is one of the largest in North America. It covers more than six hectares and features close to 10,000 rose bushes, representing more than 900 species and cultivars, laid out in about a hundred different beds.

The Rose Garden is divided into two main sections, illustrating the history and development of roses. The ornamental section, laid out like a river of roses flowing around small islands of trees and shrubs, contains modern bush and climbing roses. The other section showcases collections of species and shrub roses, some of them old garden roses and others modern varieties.

This last section includes the roses from the Explorer series created by Felicitas Svejda, along with the Parkland series, also developed by Agriculture Canada.
