Today’s pictures from the Botanical Gardens is their beautiful Cactus House – Part 3!

The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens in Lackawanna, New York is just a beautiful place to visit. Originally it was the Lord & Burnham conservatory that opened in 1900 and is considered a national historic site, educational center, and a destination full of exotic plants and flowers from around the world! They have a dozen or more rooms each with a theme such as the tropical house where the temperature and humidity is properly controlled for the plants.

      Thanks! It is a pretty plant! 🙂

  2. Beautiful photos. Was it hot inside the botanical gardens? One really does need to heed the warning of safety around cacti as there are not a very forgiving plant.

      Each room was temperature control to the types of plants. The tropical room was fabulous as it was nice and hot! Other rooms were more normal temperatures. Overall it was very comfortable. 🙂 Yes, there were a lot of cacti in the cactus room! Plus a lot of children running around. Could be a dangerous combination.

    Do you happen to have a photo of the description card/plant name for the third photo in your series? I have one that looks very similar, I’m curious if it’s the same plant, just older/grown much larger or a different species.

    Love the pictures!

    Thanks,
    Lauren

      Hi Lauren. I do not have the exact name but it looks like a Jade to me. I enlarged the picture and the tag says it is from South Africa and is part of the Stonecrop family. Based upon a google search it makes sense to be a jade. Hope this helps. Bernice 🙂
