Areas and Species

The flowerbeds are divided and devoted largely to native flora, from plants of the deciduous mesophilic alpine forest, from those of aquatic environments to nitrophilous and waste places. Despite the small size, small basins and reliefs distribute the flowerbeds along a path that leads to the discovery of new details step by step. There is a point from which the Garden is altogether visible. The location, for display, temperature, solar radiation, humidity, shows microclimate favourable to the growth of species of different climates.

taxa in cultivation are around 1,200. (Download the list)


There are small areas that have a sense of phytogeographical and expose, for example, Mediterranean plants, Asian, American, African, and Australian. There is no shortage of significance sets of various ecological species (succulent, tropical, carnivorous, etc.) or anthropogenic (medicinal, food, ornamental, dry cleaners).

EXOTIC SPECIES: The flowerbeds welcome plants from other continents such as oriental plants, ornamental conifers, ornamental grasses, Australian-born plants, exotic aquatic plants, of African origin plants, plants of American origin and other.

NATIVE SPECIES: The plants of our region are divided into microhabitats that want to evoke the growth environments, from low altitudes to alpine mountain environments. Plant native shrubs, plants of the deciduous forest mesophilic and ravine, native plants of aquatic environments, ruderal environments plants, marginal and synanthropic plants, rupicole calcofile flowerbed of native ferns, bog plants of low altitude and altitude, plants of alpine environments with carbonate and silica substrate, plants of the coniferous forests and subalpine bushes, plants of the mountain down environments and plants of nitrofili environments.

MEDITERRANEAN SPECIES: Sector dedicated to plants of the Mediterranean region both in cultivation, both spontaneous, both naturalized.

PLANTS AND THE MAN: The Human Life has a close relations with the Kingdom of Plants, as evidenced by the collection of this area, which brings together aromatic, medicinal, food, dyeing and others.
