There is a sumptuous display of bromeliads all round the gardens which are well-suited to the tropical conditions. Arriving at the Gardens you are greeted by two stone Asian lion dogs. Close behind is a display of the yellowy-orange Aechmea blanchetiana from the Atlantic Rainforest of Brazil. The gate pillars are topped with urns overflowing with Alcantarea imperialis, one of the largest of the species and now considered endangered in the wild.
The Orchid Garden, with its beautiful hanging Staghorn Ferns (Platycerium sp.), Spanish Moss (Tillandsia usneoides) and orchid sprays has a beautiful assortment of bromeliads and crotons, adding additional warmth and color to the terraces. Bromeliads are also displayed in the more formal Parterre Garden as well as in beds around the Garden, including by the copper water kettle fountain.
