Bambouseraie de Prafrance

The bamboo collection was started by the spice millionarie Eugène Mazel in 1855 and taken over by the Nègre family in 1902. The climate is good for bamboos but bringing sufficient water to the site was expensive. The garden has an extensive collection of plants, in a dramatic location, and runs the world's largest bamboo nursery. The word Bambouseraie was coined to describe this place.
