Kenting Forest in
the southern Taiwan is
among others, a true botanical garden with many collections:
Fern, Arum, Botel Tobago Island, Ethno-Plant, Aquatic Garden, Lianas &
Vines, Native Plants, Cycad, Cactus, Rare and Endangered, Laurel, Beech,
Tropical Fruit, Pea, Weeping Fig, Ficus, Palm and other collections. I
was here in 2017.
That said, it is not the most
interesting garden I have visited. It is mainly collections of trees and
bushes, and quite frankly, I had a hard time telling them apart this
winter day. This is how most look.
But it ought to be interesting during
the warm months!
A rather large
greenhouse always look interesting.
inside was just what an average floweriest offers.
Even the aquatic
part was quite disappointing.
Their ancient coral reef was a great
feature. It even had large caves with numerous bats.
The best part.
The desert plants
are protected against the rain.
A lot of Euphorbias and some cacti.
