Taipei Rose Garden Presents Rose Feast Comprising 700 Varieties
The autumn rose exhibition has arrived at Xinshen Park’s Taipei Rose Garden!From November 18 through December 1, over 700 varieties of roses will grace the garden against a backdrop of beauty melodies and painting exhibits. According to Parks and Street Lights Office (PSLO) Director Huang Li-yuan, the city government has invested much effort in transforming Taipei Rose Garden into a venue boasting great diversity of roses through soil preparation and test cultivation of various rose species since 2010. High temperatures and the threat of typhoons also posed challenges to the maintenance of the garden.Following seven years of hard work, the garden is now home to a proud collection of miniature roses, shrub roses, climbing roses, floribunda roses, and hybrid tea roses, becoming a magnet for rose enthusiasts.Another highlight of the exhibition is the opening of the “Classic Rose” area which presents a visual feast of tea roses and classic roses. The year-round flowers are grown in clusters to create different color patches in a floral sea. PSLO noted that local musicians will bring live music performances to the garden in the morning of November 25 and 26. The public are invited to visit the venue to relish the aroma of roses and musical melodies.
