Naturalistic description of the flora
The attractiveness of the Cavaglia Glacier garden is not only due to the giants’ pots themselves but also to its typical alpine vegetation, enhanced by the presence of a biotope developed after the retreat of the glacier about 10’000 years ago.

The flora of the Glacier Garden is very particular and includes several rare species.

Antonio Giuliani, a keen Poschiavo botanist, has carried out research on the subject which includes a description of the flora and many beautiful pictures.
