Native plants

Section of Native plants consists of wild vascular plants of Finland planted in various natural habitats.

In the area you will find two small ponds, dry and moist meadows, shore plants, groves and different forest types.

Dozens of plants classified as endangered have also been placed in the collections for ex situ conservation purposes. Lady's slipper (Cypripedium calceolus), bluntleaf sandwort (Moehringia lateriflora), large pink (Dianthus superbus), thorn rose (Rosa sherardii) or a Lapland buttercup (Coptidium lapponicum) can surprise a sharp-eyed visitor with its blooms.

The globeflower (Trollius europaeus) meadow by the pond, when blooming, represents the northern summer at its best.
