Exploring Goričca, guided tour of the botanical garden
The word Goričca means little mountain. Indeed, from a botanical point of view, this little hill is a very small mountain. There are more than 200 different species of flowers, ferns and mosses. The southern slope is richly vegetated with plants from the large limestone outcrops, and groups of deciduous trees are like scaled-down mixed forests. Even cold-loving plants can be found in the shady fleshy areas between the hills and the Sava River.
The diversity of the flora can be observed almost all year round: the black cornflower peeps out in winter, the liverwort, trumpet violets and violets in early spring. The little evergreen’s leaves do not fall off in winter, hence its name.
Many of the plants here are poisonous, such as Solomon’s seal, lily of the valley or wolfberry. Some are also medicinal or edible: black thorn, rose hips or lungwort. No plants have been specifically planted on this botanical trail. Nature lovers have merely labelled the plant wealth in their natural habitat in order to educate and raise awareness of nature conservation.
