Created in 1992, this Rose Garden was put in place with the objective of re-tracing the main lines of the evolution of cultivated roses, from ancient times until 1867. This date is considered by specialists as the date of the creation of what are termed modern roses, such as the ornamental hybrids and the polyantha and floribunda roses.

The briars from which the first cultivated roses were derived are found in the upper part of the garden, around the Pergola. The collections stretch down towards the lake, around a grass pathway, oriented towards Mont Blanc

The most favourable time to visit this collection is around mid-June.
