The Palm House Lodz Reviews
Sep 27, 2007
The palm house was founded in 1956 and after many renovations it's still working. It's collection includes 4,500 specimens of more than 1,100 plant species and varieties. Of the 65 plant families, Cactaceae, Crassulaceae, Euphorbiaceae, Araceae, Begoniaceae, Piperaceae, Marantaceae, Orchidaceae and the Phylum Pteridophyta are most numerously represented. Eighteen species of palm trees are among the oldest plants here. A number of them are more than 130 years old and rise to a height of nearly 18 m. The Palm House is surrounded by the "Źrodliska" historical park that can boast 300-year old oak trees.
Palm House is open from Tuesday till Sunday, except: holidays and the last week of March and July (plant nurture)
