Coinciding with the time when roses are in blossom, Barcelona City Council is organising the 19th International New Roses Competition in the rose garden in the Parc de Cervantes.
The competition is aimed at cultivators of new rose species, as well as city residents, with a programme of activities for all members of the public that includes floral art displays, gastronomy and concerts.
The contest enjoys international recognition. The roses presented are brand new varieties which are yet to be marketed commercially. A space in the rose garden is set aside for the winning roses in each edition.
