The Roseraie teams up with BGCI

Friday 4 September 2015

This year, the Val-de-Marne département has joined forces with BGCI (Botanic Gardens Conservation International). The collections of old roses at the Roseraie and of lilies at the nursery now feature in this international network of botanic conservatories and gardens.

The Roseraie du Val-de-Marne is included in the additional inventory of historical monuments and listed as a Remarkable Garden. It is also acknowledged to be a conservatory of specialist plant collections for the Rosa genus by the CCVS.


A new project got under way this year, this time with international implications: the Val-de-Marne département joined the international consortium of botanic conservatories and gardens, BGCI (Botanic Gardens Conservation International). Bringing together more than 800 botanic gardens and other partners across 120 countries, BGCI is the world’s largest plant conservation network. Its mission is to: "mobilise botanic gardens and engage partners in securing plant diversity for the well-being of people and the planet".


Through this membership, the Roseraie is promoting its plant collections and the biodiversity they represent. It also confirms its conservational role among partners worldwide. The conservation of species and varieties will be greatly assisted thanks to this collaborative platform...
