The lime tree cordata and the Vancouver grandis
Lime cordata and its boxwood crown
After walking along a few conifers, Sitka spruce, Atlas blue cedars and Himalayan pines, the path, punctuated by hackberry trees and yew trees that form green buttresses along the wall, leads the visitor to a mound on which sits a majestic lime tree surrounded by a triple crown of boxwood.
The purple beech
A few meters further on, on the right, a purple beech has blossomed.
The Vancouver grandis
Opposite the bamboo spring, on the left, a bunch of very tall (50 m) Vancouver grandis is worth a look.
Along the way... The unchanging silhouettes of the two oaks and the giants of the park
Further on, two large oaks, standing like immutable sentinels, introduce the walker to a new landscape, followed by two twin purple beeches.
The eye is drawn to a giant Lawson cypress, an opening allows you to enter a plant cathedral that covers 300 m2 on the ground! The tree has a central trunk and seven lateral trunks formed by “suckering” roots.
One of the largest sequoias in France
Then dominates the giant sequoia with its 45 m height and its 10.70 m circumference, one of the most imposing in France.
Some venerable trees around the water feature
Tulip tree of Virginia
Near the pond, the bald cypress has intertwined its top with the branches of a large American oak. Then the eye is drawn to a tulip tree of Virginia, one of the oldest of the park.
The purple beech, unfortunately senescent, overhangs different species of alders (glutinous, imperial and cordata).
The 5 lime trees and the larch
The walk ends with a bunch of five lime trees with small and large leaves, not far from an old European larch, another oldest tree of the park.
