15 photos of the Top Rose Garden in London

Quuen Mary's Rose Garden offers a delight to rose maniacs. Below photograps were taken end of May - looks like this is the best timing to visit this rose garden in London. Located in Regents Park. Queen Mary's Rose Garden is one of the greatest formal rose gardens, with about 400 different varieties and more than 60,000 plants. It was founded in 1828 and was originally called the gardens of the Royal Botanic Society.

 Norwich Castle rose.

 Look how thick are the bottom stems of the roses. Entire plants were about 1 m tall.

 In the far sight roses scrambling along ropes in Fragonard swags.

 Above and below Brother Cadfael - English rose.

 Above and below Fellowship rose. Can you see how thick the body of this plan is? I think it must be very very old. Lichen grows on it - which means the air is clean.

 Ice Cream rose above.

 Little untidy Belle Epoque variety, but is it so important if you count the number of colors is displays?
