Get to know the plants

Olea Europaea (Olive Tree)

Olea europaea is a slow-growing evergreen tree that, when it matures, exhibits a gnarled trunk with a low, spreading trunk comprising narrow silvery leaves.

 

Its fruit, known as olive, starts green and gradually darkens to purple or black when ripe. It is eaten, usually after being cured in brine, and is also used to make cooking oil.

 

Olives trees are pollinated by wind and not by wildlife, therefore, the direction of wind during bloom time is an important consideration.

 

Can be found at Canopy Park, opposite Foggy Bowls

HABITAT

Moist tropical forests, Steep hillsides and ledges

ORIGIN

Africa, Temperate Asia, Southern Europe


Nymphaea Nouchali (Water Lily)

Water lilies are day-blooming, opening their large, beautiful flowers in the morning and eventually closing from mid-afternoon onwards. Water lilies have underground stems (rhizomes) buried in the mud. From the rhizome grows long stalks which hold the leaves and flower above the water surface.

 

The Impressionist painter, Claude Monet, often featured water lilies in his artwork, most noticeably in his series of paintings called Water Lillies.
