Shenzhen's Renmin Park in Southern China has more than 10,000 roses (100 species). Its crowning glory is the collection of 23 ancient Chinese roses. The garden also contains a rose exhibition hall, three rose "appreciating zones" and a rose photo exhibition corridor. More than 2, 000,000 people have visited the garden since its inception ten years ago.
Despite hot, rainy and persistently damp summers, rose culture problems have been solved by the construction of a blind drainage system. And by grafting miniature roses onto the old roots of species roses, the park's gardeners have created some innovative bonsais - a harmonious blend of Chinese traditional bonsai and modern rose culture.
