Flowers of the Mediterranean– a dream of the south

The sun-kissed southwestern slope of the Gardens, burgeoning with sweetly-scented dwarf shrubs and other native Mediterranean flora, brings to mind the unique vista of southern climes. Cork and holm oaks evoke visions of the classic terrain of the Mediterranean region, and come together with the strawberry tree, the mock privet and the evergreen viburnum to form a landscape reminiscent of the Macchia shrublands.
In Italy's northernmost olive grove, pines, cypresses and age-old cultivated plants including pomegranate, mulberry and fig trees, capers, lavender and citrus trees fill the air with that unmistakeable holiday feeling.
