cameliaRoom 524
ESF Greenhouses

Identical in exterior dimensions to Room 514, this 675 square foot “Dendro” greenhouse features our permanent collection of tender temperate and maritime plant materials that can’t survive our rigorous Central New York winters if grown outdoors. However, these plants do have a chilling (vernalization) requirement in order to set flower and vegetative buds, so the greenhouse is not heated during the winter months, allowing temperatures to drop to near freezing at night.

Among the plants in this collection are winter-blooming camellias, crepemyrtle, both coastal and giant redwoods, and yesterday-today-and-tomorrow (Brunfelsia).
