Gymnosperms do not form a specialized organ called a “flower”; their naked seeds lie openly on the seed scale. Therefore, it is terminologically incorrect to consider the time of pollination and fertilization of plants in this group as “flowering.” We will see the prototypes of flowers and fruits in various groups of gymnosperms where their diversity is greatest, in the collection of Rubtsov’s Dendrarium.

The first area encountered by visitors at the entrance to the Botanical Garden was designed as an exposition of woody plants, with a parterre flowerbed in the center. Over the decade of its existence, the plants in the area have changed in size, with some proving to be less resistant than others. The main goal of caring for the area is to preserve the ideas laid out during its design, create resilient plant groups, and maintain and replenish the collection of plants.
