The Jardin des Plantes in Paris is a veritable botanical treasure, home to thousands of species of trees and plants from all over the world. Among these trees, some are particularly emblematic and deserve special attention.

  1. The giant sequoia: this imposing tree is one of the oldest in the garden, planted more than 150 years ago. It is considered one of the city's most iconic trees.

  2. Ginkgo biloba: this tree, also known as the "Tree of Life" is native to China. It is particularly appreciated for its golden leaves in autumn.

  3. The Cedar of Lebanon: this tree is considered one of the most beautiful trees in the garden, with its reddish bark and elegant branches. He is originally from the Middle East.

  4. Virginia Tulip Tree: This tree is also known as "The Tulip Tree" because its flowers resemble tulips. It is native to North America and is particularly appreciated for its spring flowering.

  5. Gleditsia triacanthos: this tree is native to North America, it is known for its thorny branches and its golden pods.

These emblematic trees bear witness to the botanical richness of the city of Paris and make an excellent souvenir for all nature lovers. At Fragment Paris, we are proud to highlight the natural heritage of the gardens of Paris by creating herbarium frames from the leaves so that you can keep a real piece, a Fragment of the gardens that you love in your home.
