Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Giardino di Flora Appenninica (10 hectares) is a botanical garden of alpine flowers located at 1,550 meters altitude at the base of Monte Campo, along the main road towards Prato Gentile in Capracotta, Province of Isernia, Molise, Italy. It is open daily in the warmer months. The garden was established in 1963 for plant trials, abandoned for almost two decades, and reopened in 1997 as a collaboration between the municipality of Capracotta and the University of Molise. Although the garden contains some flower beds, it is primarily a natural area. The garden currently contains about 300 endemic species in habitats including beech forest, rocks and cliffs, scrub, and wetlands. It also contains about 200 species introduced from elsewhere in the south-central Apennine Mountains.show more
