Malmo botanical garden

Scania, or Skane, the southernmost province of Sweden, has a relatively mild climate, rich soil and a large variety of beautiful gardens: from general botanical, park and palace gardens to various specialised ones, like a pharmacist's garden, displaying all sorts of medical herbs, a green roof experimental garden and a test and idea garden.

Malmo's botanical garden is located in the capital of Scania province, its largest city, Malmo.
The garden is large, surrounded by buildings of such different architectural styles like the modern glass house of Malmo library:

and a traditional building of a regional administration, Landstingshus:

Strolling through the various parts of the garden it I enjoyed its water and bog garden:

and its traditional Skane cultivation garden:

Many of these plants were cultivated for dried flowers bouquets, to be enjoyed during the long, dark months of winter.
