Sanssouci park and Botanical garden in Potsdam



     Today we visited magnificent park Sanssouci in Potsdam. This park is a great example of finest landscaping work. Here comes a selection of pictures taken by Björn.

Muses and the greenery


Many palm and citrus trees are grown in pots



     Botanical garden of Potsdam is situated right next to the park so we used an opportunity to check it out as well.

     Although I'm not in to rock gardening I was impressed by the large alpine garden.



     I liked a lot this hosta and Astilbe planting along a stream. Hostas are absolutely happy in such conditions - light shadow and plenty of water accessible for their roots.



     This relative of Rhododendrons Kalmia latifolia caught up my attention with its graceful flowers.



     In my opinion Adiantum pedatum is the most beautiful garden fern. This gorgeous specimen is called Adiantum pedatum var. aleuticum. It has blue-green color and slightly different shape of pinnae than Adiantum pedatum.



     Dahlia 'Bishop of Llandaff' is planted along the water cascade.
