Tropical Pavilion

Modeled after a tropical forest, this Conservatory pavilion reaches 65 feet tall to accommodate trees and includes waterfalls and streams. Plants from the Amazon basin, African rainforest, and tropical eastern Asia are represented.

Food, medicinal, industrial, and ornamental plants from all over the world are planted throughout the house, including banana plants, native to Southeast Asia; rubber tree species, from Central America; and palm trees from Madagascar. You will also see some favorite houseplant species growing beneath the canopy of taller shrubs and trees.
