The Haystack Gardens are famous not only for the variety of plants that grow there but also for their location in the hills east of Funchal.
Madeira Island has long been known as a “Garden” and it seems that everything grows in its fertile soil.
In Funchal many tropical plants have found their home and visitors can see hibiscus and bungavíleas in bloom almost all year round along with jacarandas, forest flames, coralines and bauinias in their own seasons.The Palheiro Gardens are 1,650 feet above sea level.
While most tropical plants do not get along at this altitude, the variety of plants that progress is detachable due to fresh air, often dampened by fog, encouraging rapid growth.
The original owner, the first Count of Carvalhal, planted many trees on the property and started the collection of camellias, some of its tree plantations are from 200 years ago and can still be observed today.
