With HelloMonaco looking on an International Jury has just met in the Princess Grace Rose Garden for a final examination of roses before deliberating and sharing a moment of conviviality with the members of the Association of Friends of the Rose Garden, and the DAU (Department of Urban Development) who organised the event – everyone also enjoying themselves mingling with the participants in competition.
More than 70 varieties of roses were competing for prizes under their eyes. The number of flowers, the weeks of flowering, the resistance to diseases, the fragrance, the quality of the rose (colour, rise, floridity…) and the plant (foliage, vigour, etc.) all counted.
The winners of the 6th International Rose Competition were announced late in the day, during a prize-giving ceremony held at the Monte-Carlo Bay Resort.
It was the rose Catherine Frot, by Marie-Françoise Dorieux (France) which competed in the “Multiple Flowers” category under No. 24, which eventually won the 6th International Rose Competition and which was awarded the prestigious Piaget Rose Trophy, offered by the Manufacture Piaget.
The Eudora rose, from the French company NIRP International, which was No. 10 in the “Hybrid tea” category, won the Perfume Cup, offered by the Monaco City Hall.
One prize remains to be awarded: yours!

Vote from May 5 to June 15, 2022 to make your voice heard: the rose bush that has obtained the most “likes” on its photo will be awarded the Public Prize on June 21, 2022.
