Pflanzenporträt Agave polianthiflora Gentryi, I. Richter
Abstract: Agave polianthiflora ranks among the most alluring flowering species of all Agaves. It is rarely cultivated and described here with its botanical features and cultural requirements.

Arco – Eine Stadt am Gardasee mit bemerkenswerter mediterraner Flora, M. Lorek
Abstract: The little town Arco in northern Italy is one of the most northerly areas with Mediterranean floral elements. Not only this, but some 130 years of experimentation with exotic plants and a wide range of architectural plantings make Arco a favourable spot for testing the limits of survival of exotic plants. The arboretum and some other localities in Arco hold a long history of botanical experiments, still visible nowadays. - With 17 figures and 1 table.
Keywords: Arboretum Arco - exotic plants - Jubaea chilensis - Persea americana - Sequoia sempervirens - Trachycarpus fortunei
