The park is home to over a million plants that brush up against the open spaces of surrounding streets, squares, and embankments. The botanical variety of the park reflects Russia’s natural diversity, recreating four landscapes: steppe, forests, meadows and northern landscapes.
June is the time of flowering bushes. The first to bloom are viburnums. The next to bloom are barberries, bushes resembling a fountain with tiny yellow flower splashes. A little later, you can see the flowering of potentilla. Its small flowers completely cover the shrub, contrasting with the brownish green leaves. The faded blossoms of potentilla leave neat cups, followed by new flowers, and the bush blooms until late summer.

Jasmine Fragrance in the Park
In mid-June, the air is filled with the fragrance of Jasmine. However, in fact, not only its flowers smell like that. From the botanical point of view, Philadelphus coronarius is not related to Jasmine, but due to its fragrance resembling Jasmine, people call it Garden Jasmine. The fragrance of the huge Philadelphus shrubs, covered with white flowers, becomes stronger late in the evening.

In late June, meadow plants start blooming. The bright flower spots of daisies, yarrows, cornflowers, St. John’s wort, bluebells and Veronica flowers paint in the green grass carpet in different colors. The meadow is filled with the buzzing of bees, bumblebees and the chirping of grasshoppers and crickets.
