T:0131 248 2909
The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh celebrates its 350th anniversary in 2020. For more information, visit www.rbge.org.uk/350. The Glasshouses with their ten climatic zones are a delight all year round. The Orchids and Cycads House brings together primitive cycads which dominated the land flora some 65 million years ago, and a diverse range of orchids, the most sophisticated plants in the world. In summer, giant water lilies, Victoria amazonica, are the star attraction in the Tropical Aquatic House. Plants with vibrant flowers and fascinating foliage thrive in the Rainforest Riches House and the complex ecosystems of life in the world’s deserts are explored in the Arid Lands House. A large collection of gingers, Zingiberaceae, one of the largest collections of vireya rhododendrons in the world and a case housing carnivorous plants are among other attractions.
Sunday 7 June, 2pm - 5pm (2020)
