Festival of Roses in Lyon amazes crowds

The Festival of Roses in Lyon, France was a chance for the city’s rose fanciers to get together and admire some of the most beautiful flowers currently blooming.

The history of roses in Lyon goes back to 1834, when Jean-Baptiste Guillot established his firm “La Terre des Roses” in the city. The company went on to develop the technique of grafting roses onto eglantine rootstock grown from seeds. This is now used worldwide by all rose breeders. The company also produced the world’s first hybrid tea rose.
