In the primordial world below,
rows of grapevines come down from the walls
of a canyon right down in the tank.
Beside it blooms russelia.

NYMPHS AND WATER LILIES
GUARD THE POND

Located in a large area within our caves gardens, the Nymphaeum is inspired by the classic Southern baroque gardens and it is one of the main park’s attractions. The great circular tank of aquatic plants made for the Botanical Garden of Palermo, one of the most interesting in Europe, was taken as an example for its construction. Divided into sectors, there currently grow: Nelumbi, Cyperus Papyrus, Cyperus Alternifolius, Colocasia Esculenta, with its giant leaves and several varieties of rustic and tropical water lilies, at day and night, among which stand for size the Victoria Amazonica and Euryale Ferox. Nearby there is a small collection of hybrid Hibiscus Rosa Sinensis of multiple colours, with simple or double petals.

THE BORDER IS MADE OF YELLOW FLOWERS
FROM SELLOWIANA LANTANA AND IBISCUS.
EVERYWHERE AROUND, THERE ARE EGYPTIANS PAPYRI,
YUCCAS, CYPRESSES AND ALEPPO’S PINES.
