The Provins Rose Garden, a green heaven with the label of « Remarkable Garden », which reveals the beautiful stories of its roses…
In this green paradise overlooking the monuments of the Old Town, discover the Provins Rose Garden.
Hear the History of the Rose through more than 450 varieties of roses planted by theme in a 3.5-hectare garden.
You’ll learn all about modern roses that bloom until autumn and old roses: Damask roses, Centifolias, hybrid tea roses and French roses. The most famous is « Rosa Gallica Officinalis », known as the « Rose of Provins », was brought back to Provins by Thibaud IV of Champagne upon his return from the Crusades.
As you revisit the history of this iconic flower, it will reveal all its colours, shapes and perfumes in a bucolic atmosphere.
The medicinal garden showcases various medieval plants with oft-forgotten medicinal benefits: dill, comfrey, wild celery…
Relax on the deckchairs dotted here and there for a wee break in Paradise!
And if you feel like walking barefoot in the fresh grass…
You can sit on the terrace and enjoy some ice cream or other sweets in the Tea Room. You’ll enjoy an unobstructed view of the medieval town’s monuments.
Why the fireplace, you might ask? It’s in full swing during the winter to warm you up by the fire!
The rose garden is also a venue for concerts, exhibitions and a shop to buy the most beautiful roses. It also provides aesthetic decor.
Our latest rose creation is the Julie Andrieu® rose (delstrirocrem)
Passionate for travel and cooking, this famous French journalist charms viewers on her programme “Les Carnets de Julie », Saturdays on French channel France 3!
Having already put Provins in the spotlight in May 2015, she returned to the Provins Rose Garden a year later with a new and equally enticing report dedicated to the flavours of flowers!
In 2015, Georges Delbard Nurseries and Rose Gardens, as well as Bruno Clergeot, owner of the Provins Rose Garden, came up with the idea of a rose dedicated entirely dedicated to her. The Julie Andrieu® rose (delstrirocrem) was inaugurated in the presence of the fair lady herself, on Wednesday, the 1st of June 2016 at the Provins Rose Garden!
