A TRUE GEM OF MERANO

TREASURES AND RARE PLANTS IN THE MARLENA PARK


Wollemi Pine

Wollemia nobilis is a conifer discovered in 1994 in Australia. This species was presumed extinct and is known only through fossils dating back millions of years ago. This rarity was the twelfth tree brought to us in Europe at Marlena.

Japanese palm maple

Japanese palm maples can resemble an 8-10 metre tree or a broad shrub known for its fascinating colour in autumn. These features make it a very beautiful ornamental plant.

Evergreen magnolia

Evergreen magnolia is a joy to the eyes throughout the year. Especially attractive with stunning, fragrant flowers that are among the largest in the botanical world.

Wisteria

Wisteria is a robust, strong climbing plant with twisted stems. Most often, it flowers twice a year and the first flowers bloom in spring, even before the leaves. A second flowering period follows in July or August.

Handkerchief tree

The whimsical name of the handkerchief tree, also called the dove tree, is due to its bracts (modified leaves) hanging on the branches, which look like handkerchiefs or a flock of white doves. The trees flower for the first time only after 15-20 years.    

Cercidifillo - Katsura

Cercidifillo, originally from Japan, attracts attention in the spring by with its pink flowers, while in autumn its leaves emit an inebriating scent of cinnamon and caramel.

Ginkgo

Ginkgo is one of the oldest, most symbolic and effective healing plants in the world. Its characteristic leaf often adorns food, jewellery and wellness products. It is also called a temple tree, because in the past it was often seen in this sacred place.

Albizia

The Albizia, also known as the silk tree or sleeping tree, because its leaves fold up at night or in case of dryness. It has a variety of beautiful pink and cream-coloured silky stamen. For this reason, it is often chosen as an ornamental plant for parks and gardens.

Giant sequoia

The evergreen giant sequoia can grow up to 95 metres in height and the diameter of the trunk at the base can reach up to 17 m. The giant sequoia is at risk of extinction in its natural growing area. Outside its current habitat it is cultivated as a tree resistant to the cold in parks in Central Europe.
