These genuine oases of nature draw millions of visitors every year.
Buxus Sempervirens, commonly known as boxwood or common box, is an evergreen ornamental shrub that can be easily pruned and modeled into various geometric shapes (spheres, cubes), providing a clear example that nature can also be a proper “mathematician”. The plant has been used for millennia to embellish Italian-style (“All’italiana”) gardens, where the shrubs are perfectly cut into various geometric shapes, forming an enchanting and cohesive view. Palas Park Iasi includes Buxus spheres with a 200 cm circumference and estimated to be around 50 years old, and which create a distinctive and eye-catching view.
Taxus, commonly known as common yew, is a low growing evergreen shrub that can be modeled into various shapes and provides a spectacular view in both Palas Park Iasi and Iulius Gardens Timișoara. Perfect specimens of Taxus can be found here, conferring symmetry to the gardens and impressing visitors every single time. The shrubs are planted in large pots and are estimated to be up to 50 years old.
Acer Palmatum, commonly known as Japanese maple, creates a year-round outstanding chromatic spectacle in both Palas Park Iasi and Iulius Gardens Timișoara. During summer, the shrubs alternate between shades of green and red, while in the autumn they take on very bright colors, ranging from yellow to deep red, offering a genuine spectacle of nature.
