Description:The Botanical Garden Halle keeps many important collections and among them are special systematic collections of orchids, bromeliads, carnivorous plants, grass species (especially from the tribe Aveneae), Mammillaria (Cactaceae), Echinodorus (Alismataceae), and Cryptocoryne (Araceae). A large systematic collection is also preserved for teaching purposes. Among the collections is a small New Zealand alpine collection (part of the Alpinium) and other plants.
