Plants at Linnaeus’ Hammarby

A plant of Golden Garlic, Allium moly, full of yellow bloom, in a flowerbed in front of a stone wall. Around it are other plants, among them a yellow iris. A few slate signs, with the scientific names following Linnaeus’ system, are stuck in the soil. Foto Jesper Kårehed, Uppsala University.

All plants at Linnaeus’ Hammarby were either grown by Linnaeus or popular in gardens in the 18th century.

Outside the mainbuilding at Hammarby we have reconstructed Linnaeus’ plantings using his plant lists. About 40 species of plants also remain from Linnaeus’ time in the 18th century and constitute a valuable biological  heritage.
