Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Giardino Botanico Fondazione Andr Heller (2 acres), also known as the Giardino Botanico A. Hruska, is a botanical garden located on the grounds of the Andr Heller Foundation above Lake Garda, via Roma, Gardone Riviera, Province of Brescia, Lombardy, Italy. It is open daily in the warmer months. The garden was established circa 1901 by Arturo Hruska, an Austrian dentist, who from 1910-1971 collected many species on the grounds of his villa, organized as a dense forest of bamboo, Japanese ponds, streams, and waterfalls, as well as alpine plants in ravines. Since 1988 it has been owned by artist Andr Heller, and now contains interesting sculptures by Keith Haring, Roy Lichtenstein, and so forth, set among more than 500 species including cactus, edelweiss, ferns including Osmunda regalis, magnolias, orchids, water lilies, and trees.show more
