In the garden section "Plant Families" we show the systematic diversity of plants or the variety of forms that have developed within related plant groups in the course of evolution. On display are 500 plant species from 50 selected plant families.

The loosely curved paths are also the demarcations of the family subclasses according to Cronquist's system. Detailed information panels provide information on the systematics, morphology and distribution of the plants shown.

On display are, among others:

  • Curly Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica)
  • False indigo (Baptisia australis)
  • Ravenna grass (Saccharum ravennae)
