A basic collection of perennials from Uruguay, South America and other continents.
Most of the plants were familiar, some I’d read about but not seen live, and a few were varieties of plants I hadn’t yet encountered.
‘Cedron del Monte’ in the Uruguay section pictured here is native from Agentina to Texas.
Sebastiania Blanquillo can apparently help remediate hydrocarbon spills after tests in Brazil.
The greenhouse was neglected. I was surprised there are no volunteer groups keeping things up. Many of the plants signs were unreadable/missing.
I saw Cats Claw up close, every time I went to touch the leaves it clawed me.
Interesting 1913 sculpture of a man with hands chained behind him and a woman.
