Sun-seekers in a cold climate

Collections under glass

The collections in the greenhouses include almost 10,000 plant species from all tropical, subtropical, and warm temperate regions of the world, 10% of which are not found in any other botanical garden in the world.

In the public greenhouses of the Plant Palace, we introduce visitors to the tropical rainforest, from savannah to desert. 

We also have a number of research and conservation greenhouses which house very diverse collections. These are not open to the public. There we nurture, among others, one of the largest collections of tropical representatives of the coffee family (Rubiaceae), and a collection of succulent spurge plants (Euphorbia) which includes a large number of endangered species.
