Jardin Exotique - the Semi-Desert Flora


The Exotic Garden cascades down and around a steep rock face at an altitude of more than a hundred metres. It has a micro climate favourable to cacti and other succulents and so the plants have grown to the size which is normal in their native countries, some as high as 10 metres. There are 7,000 varieties of semi-desert flora in this amazing garden spread over an area reached by steep paths and foot bridges.

Tomorrow we'll learn a little of the history of this garden.

I would love to visit this garden my cacti are nowhere like that size it must have taken decades to achive.

It definitely looks exotic to me! I've never been to a desert, or even a semi-desert, garden before. Looking forward to your other photos.

The Exotic Garden looks like a delightful place on a warm Spring day, and a pleasant oasis from the high density of Monaco.

Thank you for adding your dog expertise to help answer Abraham Lincoln's question about the dog on my site yesterday.
