Strange menhirs loom up in this garden, where you'll find yourself rambling between the abyss and the sky, losing your bearings. Feathers caress you and conifers rise up out of the oblivion.
Come into our conisphere for a wholly different view of the conifers, and a chance to contemplate an array of botanical curiosities, astonishing textures, algae, moss, needles or scales. From here you'll see the architecture of precious conifers, such recent finds as wollemia nobilis, specimens from private collections, unidentified varieties as well as subtle flowering, young shoots, delicate cones and rare gems.
Their figures stand in contrast against the gentle grass at your feet. The shades of green mingle together, grass green against dark green, bluish green against light green, and the flowers turn into elves. Are you dreaming or is this real?
It's another way of looking at pinophytes, a fresh association, conifers and grass, aesthetic and rustic, needing little water, a plant alliance for more environmentally friendly gardens.
