Jardin des Plantes, Rouen

Interesting
These beautiful 10ha grounds, which date back to the 17C, are planted with trees of many different species and flowers. The tropical glasshouses are home to a remarkable collection of plants. Among the most rare is the famous giant Amazonian water lily, Victoria regia, the plateau-shaped leaves of which can reach 1m in diameter in summer; its flower opens up white in the morning, becomes pink at midday and fades to mauve the same evening.
