The True Cross

With its label “Village Fleuri 4 fleurs“, the commune of La Vraie-Croix has also distinguished itself by obtaining the Grand Prix National du Fleurissement, and then the European Prize for Flowering.

In 2018, the commune was confirmed the label “4 flowers” and awarded the exceptional prize of the “Fleur d’Or”. This trophy rewards the flowering, but also the quality and management of green spaces in respect of the environment.

Lately, themed gardens (fuchsias, dahlias, sage) have been created and allow you to discover unusual varieties. This typically Breton village, marries both the beauty of the stone and the beauty of the plants.

From 1903, Alfred Klots, an American painter, regularly stayed in Rochefort-en-Terre, revived the castle and invested in local life: as early as 1911, he created the first flowered window contest and stimulated the taste of the people of Rochefort for their heritage, thus putting in place the foundations of a tourist activity.

In 1959, when the contest was launched, Rochefort-en-Terre was already well flowered. The commune will win the competition 4 years in a row before being put out of the competition.

In 2010, the tourist office obtained the first national prize for the flowering of tourist offices.

To be discovered in particular, a mauve wisteria, more than 100 years old, which climbs up the facade of the Town Hall.

There is Larré which now has one petal. Berric, Saint-Gravé and Questembert have two petals and Caden which got its 4th petal this year! As for the commune of Lauzach, it got its 1st flower in the towns and villages in bloom competition.

It is necessary to obtain four petals to get a flower at its town entrance. It’s no longer enough, today, to plant flowers on every corner to hope to attract the attention of the jury. Modern flowering is inseparable from consideration of biodiversity, environmental protection and sharing with residents.
