Rose Romance — as the exhibition is called — features more than 40 varieties of roses, with some rare sights in the region.

Here’s a look at some of the highlights.

1) Trelliages

Trelliages were originally structures meant to support climbing plants with vines.

The architecture apparently became an elevated art form in the 17th century, after King Louis XIV got one for his garden.

Now you can pose for photos with it, we guess.

2) Juliet’s tower

The garden adds a dash of Shakespeare with Juliet’s tower, which is also the centrepiece of the flower field.

3) Over 40 species of roses

More than 40 varieties of roses will be present, in a number of shades.

These are apparently not “garden variety” roses, but rare hybrids.
