Description

"Anastasie Fătu" Botanical Garden of Iaşi was founded in 1856 and it bears the name of its founder, the famous doctor and naturalist Anastasie Fătu. It is the first Romanian botanical garden belonging to a university and the oldest in the country, unique for the number of species and for their special preservation. Its current location on Copou Hill was set in 1965 and it now has a surface of 99.8 hectares.


In the representative collections of the Botanical Garden there are about 6000 species of plants, grown in green houses and outside. The plants come from different bio- geographical areas.



What makes the Botanical garden remarkable is its collection of decorative plants:
  • the richest rose collection in the country (about 600 species)
  • a special collection of chrysanthemums (469 species, 41 of which are created here) and large simple chrysanthemums (70 species)
  • a collection of azaleas (30 species) and camellias (10 species)
  • a collection of cactuses (about 700 species)
  • a valuable collection of bonsai trees


Since 1991 a special place is held by the section for blind persons. There are flowers with powerful scents or with peculiar leafs that also have labels in Braille alphabet.

The Botanical Garden co-operates with partners from Romania and from abroad. Membership in the Association of Romanian Botanical Gardens (since 2000) as a founding member has offered the institution a great perspective, especially towards similar institutions from Europe.
