One positive result of the heat wave we’re enduring in New York is that it is accelerating the blooming cycle of the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden at The New York Botanical Garden. With three consecutive days of heat, the award-winning, sustainable garden is expected to reach full flower this weekend, remaining a glorious spectacle for the upcoming months ahead.
Long lauded as one of the most beautiful rose gardens in the United States, the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden at The New York Botanical Garden has been transformed into one of the most sustainable rose gardens in the world, with more than 4,000 roses in over 680 varieties. The Botanical Garden’s annual five-month-long showcase of the beloved plant, America’s national flower, planted in the Rockefeller Rose Garden’s magnificently landscaped beds, begins with a two-week peak bloom in June and continues with a kaleidoscope of color throughout the summer months until the end of October.
