The Garden's outdoor displays

Native plants of Bavaria

The south-west border of the Garden is formed by a group of trees with thick undergrowth, an example of the “Lohwald”, the riparian forest on the outskirts of Munich. The oak, the common hornbeam and many colourful spring-flowering plants like the Turk's Cap Lily, anemones and liverwort are part of this environment. This vegetation used to be typical for the Munich area but has now almost disappeared.

This type of vegetation is commonly found on the Munich gravel plain, a steppe with drought-tolerant plants forming a colourful mosaic of plant communities in summer.
