Shade houses

In the shade houses, we can simulate the special conditions afforded by the forest and woodlands.

This is where plant species that are used to such conditions thrive, such as Arum maculatum (spotted arum), Arisaema triphyllum (jack-in-the-pulpit), Asarum europaeum (hazelwort), Asarum canadense (Canadian snakeroot), Galium odoratum (woodruff), Helleborus foetidus (stinking hellebore), Helleborus niger (Christmas rose), Helleborus viridis (green hellebore), Ranunculus ficaria (lesser celandine), Epimedium species (barrenwort), Tamus communis (black bryony), Viola odorata (sweet violet), Mercurialis perennis (dog’s mercury), Cypripedium pubescens (yellow lady’s slipper) or Trillium erectum (wake-robin). A larger number of plants are cultivated from Dryopteris filix-mas (male fern) and Asplenium scolopendrium (Hart’s-tongue fern). The shade is provided by various climbing plants such as Virginia creeper and American moonseed.
