The closest building to the Ridgeway Center is the Linnean House. This greenhouse with brick arches and a mostly glass roof is the oldest continuously operating greenhouse west of the Mississippi River. It was built in by Henry Shaw and is named after Carl Linnaeus, the botanist who invented the current scientific naming system for plant and animal species.

Shaw had busts of Linnaeus other influential botanists placed inside the house around the time it opened. This house is home to a variety of plants but is best known for its collection of Camellias, a flowering tree. Camellias are native to Southeast Asia and the leaves of certain species are used to make tea. These trees bloom in the winter from December to mid April, with their peak being in February.

Perhaps the most prominent greenhouse at the Missouri Botanical Garden is Climatron.

This structure was built in to house tropical plants in a natural looking environment. Prior to being housed in the Climatron, tropical plants were housed in the Palm House, a structure that was crumbling and in need of replacement. The Climatron is a climate controlled greenhouse built inside of a geodesic dome, making it the first structure of its type to be used for a greenhouse. The design requires no structural columns or supports inside the dome, allowing for over one half acre of uninterrupted space.

Due to its unique design and aluminum frame, it won the Reynolds Award for architectural excellence in aluminum. The structure was also named as one of the top architectural achievements in the country in In , the original aluminum frame had become warped and the Plexiglas windows were worn out. The Climatron closed for a 22 month renovation that included the construction of a new dome within the existing structure. This dome used glass instead of Plexiglas, as it is more durable. Once complete, the original structure was left with its windows removed due to its historic value.

Due to its unique design and large size, the structure has become somewhat symbolic of the Missouri Botanical Garden. The Climatron houses approximately species of tropical plants, with some being highly endangered. A variety of birds and other animals native to the rainforest are also present in the greenhouse. A native hut, waterfalls, tropical aquarium, and agricultural displays are among the sights seen in the Climatron.

Several species of Cycads, a primitive plant common during the Jurassic Period million years ago are displayed.

These very plants were displayed in the St. Louis Worlds Fair and are thought to be over years old. The Brookings Interpretive Center Annex to the Climatron houses colorful poison dart frogs and other displays on tropical regions. The Schoenberg Temperate House, built in to replace the aging Mediterranean House, is another glass structure located just north of the Climatron. It features vegetation from temperate, Mediterranean climates around the world.

Mediterranean climates experience warm, sunny, and dry summers while being cool and rainy in the winter. The Schoenberg House includes pomegranates, figs, grapes, laurel, cork, olive, various spices, and many others. Plants in the greenhouse begin blooming in late winter, peak during April, and continue to bloom during the summer. The stone portico archway present inside the greenhouse was once the main entrance to St. It was saved when the school was razed in A Moorish garden built to resemble the 11th century Alahambra garden in Granada, Spain.

One of the most popular international gardens has to be the Japanese Garden. The garden keeps with the Japanese tradition of using nature as art.

    This garden features a large pond inhabited by the fish koi, a Japanese species of carp. Although koi appear to be a giant goldfish, the two species are not identical. They are both in the carp family. One can buy fish food from machines nearby to feed those fish. Many of the fish are nearly two feet long and start a feeding frenzy as soon as food is thrown in the water.

    Kids and adults alike always seem to enjoy the koi and their feeding frenzies. Louis and Nanjing, China, is also included in the international collection. It was designed by a Chinese born architect and is considered to be the most authentic Chinese garden of its size in the U.
