The Wohl Rose Park of Jerusalem

Jerusalem, Israel

The Wohl Rose Park of Jerusalem covers 19 acres and has a wide range of rose varieties (about 400 varieties and 15,000 plants.) Expansive, informal beds dominate the landscape. Probably the only rose park of its kind in the Middle East, it prospers in a hot Mediterranean climate where there is no rainfall in summer.

The rose park includes the Garden of Nations, which is made up of sections donated by countries or communities around the world. Each section has rose varieties characteristic of, or grown in, the respective country. The park also has an Experimental Section where new varieties of roses are tested for their suitability for public and private gardens in Israel.
