THE CAMELLIA AND SUCCULENT HOUSE
Originally the cold house, this conservatory now houses both plants from arid climates–cacti and succulents–as well as cultured early blooming potted plants, such as camellias, azaleas and viburnum. The latter were common in 19th-century plant collections. In winter months, this house also contains special trees from the Karlsruhe orangery. In the summer, it serves as an exhibition space for art created by students at the State Academy of Fine Arts Karlsruhe.
