Lorraine’s horticultural heritage

Lorraine’s horticultural heritage

 

The collection is dedicated to plants bred in Lorraine and aims to present the creations obtained by Lorraine’s horticulturalists between the mid-19th Century and the mid-20th Century.

A great deal of bibliographical work, painstaking research and a wide range of contacts with professionals (nurserymen, arboretums, botanical gardens, etc.) in France and worldwide has meant that a large number of lilacs, syringas, deutzias, weigelas, peonies and fuchsias are now being grown in Jean-Marie Pelt Botanical Garden.

The collection has been awarded the “National Collection” label by the “Conservatoire des Collections Végétales Spécialisées”.
