Mediterranean

14 Aug

This oldest section of the gardens offers the largest trees and the shadiest spots.

Here you’ll find the country’s biggest collection of oaks, plus Cedars of Lebanon at their southernmost point of growth in the world. You’ll also get to know many plants mentioned in the Bible.

The Mediterranean section is carpeted with wild flowers in the spring, among them Narcissus, Wild Lupine, and Coral Peony.

This section also exhibits many of the plants in danger of extinction that JBG collects, cultivates and protects.
