Outdoor Plants at the Toronto Zoo

All Andrew's Plants has moved to

You can find this post here on my new site for the full post and to leave comments.

Many of the outdoor plantings at the Zoo don't really take off until around this time of year. Here are a few pictures I took yesterday.

Some sort of Pennesetum, possibly 'Little Bunny'.

Castor Bean
Large Castor Bean plants outside the front gate, along with large Sunflowers, large Cannas, and really nice "annual" Fountain Grass.

Lobelia cardinalis

Asclepias curassavica
Probably Asclepias curassavica?

Waterfall at Americas Outdoor Exhibit 2
Natural wooded area near an unnatural waterfall near the Mayan Temple display.

Miscanthus cv.
Some sort of Miscanthus, even more of these will start to really put on a show as we get later into September.


  1. Love the Toronto Zoo.They always have beautiful grounds. Your photos are very nice.

  2. Lovely...looks like they have nice gardens! I'm partial to grasses, so particularly love the Miscanthus and the Pennisetum...looks lovely with backlighting.
