The greenhouse

The Garden of Evolution. The history of life on earth from the first organic molecule to the present day.

History dive

In our spectacular 12 meter high and 1000 m2 greenhouse, the evolution of the plant kingdom explodes. Here you will find:

  • Ferns, the first plants with leaves that do not have flowers and reproduce via spores
  • Conifers, of the Gymnosperm family: from the Greek "naked seed" plant as they have no flower. Among those present also the Auracaria, very rare and protected by international conventions. An evergreen form with ovate leaves with a thorny tip. This particular aspect allows you to limit water losses and face hostile climates
  • Ginkgo Biloba, the only surviving species of a group of very ancient plants, from whose roots active ingredients used in herbal medicine and medicine are extracted
  • Angiosperms, a structure that encloses and protects the seeds: the flower. Today they are the most widespread plants on Earth, among the most primitive genera are palms and magnolias. There are many species of palm trees, different in shape and height. The leaves can be fan-shaped or pinnate. Magnolias, on the other hand, belong to one of the oldest families of Angiosperms: the essence extracted from their flowers is still among the most used in cosmetics
