Thomas Jefferson School of Law Plantscapes
Upon entering the School, visitors, students, faculty and staff are greeted with a beautiful atrium nestled in the corner of the bright building, underneath a sweeping staircase.
Plant lovers can enjoy several species of cycads and bromeliads, as well as sanseverias lining the atrium space. Flagstone rings showcase the cycads nicely, while bursts of color are provided by the guzmania bromeliads. The larger vrisea imperialis bromeliads continue the prehistoric theme with their prominent dark green and purple foliage. Viewed from the outside, sanseverias that line the exterior planters help create continuity between the interior and exterior. These exterior varieties may look the same, but have been grown and acclimated to the outside, unlike their interior climate-loving cousins. The four cycad varieties in the atrium include Cycas pectinata and Lepidozamia peroffskyana.
