Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden

The fall rose encore is currently underway in the New York Botanical Garden’s Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden. Originally designed in 1916 by landscape architect (and niece of Edith Wharton) Beatrix Jones Farrand, the garden was renovated in 1988 through a bequest by David Rockefeller in honor of his wife, Peggy. Today, the rose garden displays over 3,500 rose plants and more than 600 varieties and is being transformed into one of the most disease-resistant rose gardens in the world.Closed November through April [ info ]
