Two rare witch hazel tree cultivars animate this small, glass-enclosed, open-air, rooftop “terrarium,” a component of GV’s landscape for the Conservatory. The trees bloom during the snow of late February. Ephemeral wildflowers and hundreds of crosscut square tubes of aluminum pattern the ground plane and act as containers for patches of hypnum moss.
