The second part, behind a magnificent baroque topiary hedge designed by the owner, gives way to more open planting around a pond dug in 1994. Here is the national conservatory of botanical
roses, one of only two in France.
Around the pond, daisies and lavender keep the rosebushes company, while carp, moorhens, ducks... bring this beautiful setting to life.
The collection of botanical roses allows you to discover that the eglantine, the ancestor of our roses, is not a single species.
These roses come from China, America and the Middle East. They flower abundantly, but only once a year, unlike the perennial roses.
And then they produce small, colourful fruits.
The owner will be able to tell you passionately about these roses, their history and even what we call their thorns, their spines!
