Shanghai Chenshan Botanical Garden has a 6,000-square-meter Chinese rose island with nearly 1,000 varieties of Chinese roses. The exhibition also showcases the cultivation and breeding process of Chinese roses.

The Chenshan Botanical Garden covers a total area of 207 hectares, making it the largest botanical garden in East China. The garden area used to be occupied by old residential compounds, rice-farming plots and a limestone cave before the local government in 2004 decided it would become a place to grow and study plants.

Today, Chenshan is a national 4A-level scenic spot and member of the international community of botanical gardens, as well as a leading facility dedicated to the collection, conservation and cultivation of plants in China.
