The International Rose Test Garden in Washington Park is the oldest public rose test garden in the US and is home to over 7,000 roses of around 550 varieties. New types of roses are sent to the garden from all over the world and are tested for color, fragrance, disease resistance and other attributes. It was acquired in 1917.
