A steamy bit of South America flourishes in this Roberto Burle Marx designed Garden.
Cascading water, clear pools, and richly textured plants create a visually exciting display that takes advantage of the vertical rock channels of the greenhouse. Follow the curved path and discover colorful bromeliads and philodendrons.
Originally an extension of the Fern Passage, this area later became the Desert House, whose plants were eventually incorporated into the Silver Garden. In 1992, famed Brazilian landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx used hundreds of plants, 35 tons of rock and 3,000 feet of heating cable to create today’s Cascade Garden.
