Roses Abroad: Rose Gardens in Slovenia

Slovenia is a country with a very specific climatic diversity — this offers a possibility of naturally forming various different micro-locations. These have impact on rose gardens that can be roughly divided in two groups: Sub-Mediterranean rose gardens and Continental rose gardens. Some of the more continental rose gardens that Slovenia offers are those in Arboretum Volčji Potok, Tivoli and University Botanical garden in Maribor. Near the Adriatic Sea we can find three representative rose gardens: Valdoltra and Portorož, accompanied with one in St. Ivan in the near Trieste, Italy. In these gardens the roses bloom a bit earlier than in other parts of the country. This is due for the effects of the sea, which make winters milder and summers longer, but compared with the really Mediterranean areas, here the summers are not that hot. Besides the ones in rose gardens, in the Sub-Mediterranean area the roses are widely used as “common” park plants — in most of the occasions modern shrub varieties that bloom various times are used. 14JulAug_RosesAbroad (1)
