The Jardin des Plantes de Rouen is in Rouen, the capital of the French region of Normandy. It is the municipal botanical garden and is spread across eight hectares of land. It has a rather extensive collection of flora and has over 600 species of plants. The garden has several green houses, including a tropical greenhouse.
Visitors to the garden will be thrilled to walk through the rock garden as well as the gardens dedicated to iris and hemerocallis. There is also a rose garden as well as separate sections for medical plants as well carnivorous ones.
The original garden was first laid out in 1691, and was privately owned for over 140 years until the Municipality of Rouen bought it in 1832, when it was redesigned. Napoleon Bonaparte was also one of the former owners of the garden.
