Summer flowers

A sea of colourful summer flowers greets visitors at the main entrance during the summer months. Many of these ornamental plants are familiar from public green spaces or even from one's own balcony box. But even here, one of the main functions of botanical gardens becomes clear: the plants bear labels informing students and visitors about their name, area of origin and family affiliation. Tagetes, salvias and cannas come from Central and South America, gazanias and pelargoniums from South Africa, strawflowers from Australia.


Palm lilies (yucca), cacti, agaves and other spectacular potted plants are integrated into the summer flower group, and some of the exotic palm lilies are even hardy here. Even with the well-known summer flowers, visitors to the Botanic Garden can embark on a mental journey around the world to distant continents and climatic zones.
