Tags: garden | plant


The higher plants (also called vascular plants) include the ferns, gymnosperms and angiosperms. The ferns and gymnosperms are exhibited each in their own respective gardens; Angiosperms is more compicated and divided into Dicotyledonae and Monocotyledonae. There is a Monocotyledonae Garden. Dicotyledonae, like woody plant (Arbour tree and Shrub), is dispersed through most of the Gardens. This Garden represents the common plant species in Taiwan in taxonomical order by family, major perennial plants and partially shrubs or annual plants to the general public mainly to educate the idea of botanical taxonomy.
