Wisley, England United Kingdom
Plants from around the world create an exotic looking woodland with unusual epiphytic plants on the trees.
The Glasshouse is a state of the art building which celebrated 10 years in 2017. Covering the area of 10 tennis courts and rising to 12m (40ft) high, it is home to the RHS’s world-class tender plant collection . It is divided into three climatic zones; tropical, moist temperate and dry temperate.
Entering the Glasshouse is like walking into a jungle – tree ferns, tall palms, lush-leaved creepers and dazzling flower displays give a feeling of lushness and drama. As you follow the path, the environment and climate changes gradually, taking you on a tour through the world of plants, including many difficult to grow, rare and endangered species. Plants such as violet passion flowers, mysore clock vine, the tail flower and Jacob’s coat ‘Hoffmamnii’ can be found here, maybe some of them will be in flower during your visit – if not these particular plants, there are many more throughout the zones to enjoy.
