Relaxing in the gazebo, a couple enjoys the quiet ambience and panoramic views
of Lake Superior offered by Duluth's Rose Garden in Leif Erickson Park.
The Leif Erickson Park's Rose Garden includes over 3000 rose bushes representing more than 100 varieties, among its flowering landscape plantings. Besides being one of the midwest's few formal English style Rose Gardens, the park is architecturally significant for being constructed over Duluth's I-35 expressway. As you stroll around the beautiful park, little do you know that below your feet trucks and cars are streaming along!
Several heritage roses share this space with other spring and early summer flowers. The garden's hybrid roses don't bloom until mid-summer.
Several types of Peony Blooms are shown in the Peony Garden. In addition to the Roses, the 6 acre park includes over 10,000 other flowers, flowering shrubs, evergreens, and herbs.
Here's a sample of some of the rose plantings
