Conservatoire et Jardin botaniques de la Ville de Genève
It is upon entering the Winter Garden that the heat and humidity of the tropics will be revealed to you. Numerous plants from the tropics used as ornamentals grow under the fronds of the large palm trees.

Small display-cases contain various products from these plants and highlight their usefulness to man.
