Newly expanded to 12,000 square feet, with the new addition
of the lower section, the Rose Garden delivers luscious blooms and fragrances from more than
1,200 roses, in excess of 55-varieties and 16-different classifications of roses. The entire
series of "Knock-Out" shrub roses can be found in the garden, in addition to a wide variety of
grandifloras, floribundas, hybrid teas, mini’s and shrub roses. Be sure to look for the Chicago
Peace Rose, which is a sport mutation of the famous Peace Rose that was discovered
in the gardens at Cantigny in 1962. This glowing pink rose offers a butter yellow heart and
has a very strong perfume rose scent. A fabulous view of this rose is offered at a shady bench under the
130-foot long pergola, which flanks the rose garden on the west.
