Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam  The Hortus in Amsterdam is one of the oldest botanic gardens in Europe. A green oasis in the middle of the city. #hortusamsterdam

Even in the rain, the Hortus is an adventurous sight. Thank @monsieurschulze for this impressive #sundayshare

Nice viewpoint in our palmgreenhouse by @yhsuus for our #sundayshare

You might have seen it flowering in our green house, the paintbrush lily or in its local name poeierkwas (Haemanthus coccineus). We grow the bulbs in our nursery, but as soon as they flower, we bring them in to show to our public.

It is called hairy toad lily, this Tricyrtis hirta. Not a very flattering name, but an intriguing flower still.

Our palm greenhosue dates from 1912. It was built for professor Hugo de Vries to house his exotic (palm) collection. It is one of those places where you just stop talking and thinking for that one moment.

Goodmorning everyone✨ Our Victoria waterlily is still flowering. Did you know we are the only Dutch botanic garden that has the tropical waterlily in an outdoor pond?

Have a look through the window; the outside Dicksonia tree ferns, and inside you’ll our ancient cycad, Encephalartos altensteinii 💚💚

You’re welcome! 💚💚🌴🌴🌴🍃🍃

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.
“I don’t much care where—” said Alice.
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
