Flora in the library

The library is home to many varieties of thriving potted plants. One of the most impressive is our Cereus peruvianus (cactus), which bloomed recently. This cactus blooms but once per year, and only briefly, and the flowers only open at night!

Come into the library and have a look at our plants (and learn their Latin and English names while you're at it!).
