Plants

Hangaris Botanicus

THEY ARE RARE, REQUIRE HIGH-MAINTENANCE AND COME FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD. WHAT IS MEANT ARE NOT THE AEROPLANES OF THE FLYING BULLS, BUT RATHER THE PLANTS IN HANGAR-7. INTENDED AS A GREEN CONTRAST TO THE TECHNICAL EXHIBITION PIECES, THEY OFTEN GO UNNOTICED BY GUESTS, ECLIPSED BY THE BRIGHTLY-COLOURED, SHINY EXHIBITS. HOWEVER, ON CLOSER INSPECTION IT BECOMES CLEAR THAT THEY ARE IN THEMSELVES WORTH A VISIT.

The Date Palm

(Phoenix roebellini)

Owing to its robust nature, hardly any other kind of palm is as well-suited to the Mediterranean climate as this particular genus. The Swamp Date Palm from Indochina is much finer and more delicate in its growth than its “siblings“ in the genus Phoenix and requires a lot of warmth and air humidity all year round.

Mulberry Weeping Fig

(Ficus nitida bonsai)

Figs (ficus) are a kind of tropical creeper that can live to over 100 years in nature. These evergreens are primarily endemic to the tropical and subtropical regions of the world.

The Tamarind

(Tamarindus indica)

The originally East African Tamarind is used both agriculturally as well as for ornamental purposes in tropical regions. Its incredibly hard wood is used in carpentry. The acidic fruit pulp of the pulses can be eaten raw and can also be used as a spice. The tamarind can grow up to a height of 20 m.

Elephant's Foot

(Beaucarnea recurvata)

The Elephant's Foot gets its name from the coarse texture of its rind, which is evocative of an elephant’s skin. Also known as the Bottle Palm or Water Palm, it can mislead the uninformed visitor, for it is in fact primarily endemic to the dry regions of Mexico. Its trunk acts as a water reservoir while its thick rind provides an insulating layer against the sun.

The Black Olive

(Bucida buceras)

Besides in its Hangar-7 habitat, the Black Olive especially thrives from southern Florida to Central America. This evergreen plant occasionally produces small blackish-blue fruits, from which its name also stems. The tree can grow to a height of 5 m – which means guests of the Mayday Bar needn’t worry about their view!

Fern Palm, King Sago Palm

(Cycas rumphii, cycas revoluta, macrozamia communis)

Dinosaurs once loved to munch on these, and still certainly would today. After all, these conifer-related plants reach heights of up to 30 metres. The common term “Fern Palm” is contradictory as they are frequently confused with and mistaken for palms or ferns, but are in fact neither. This species is a development of the fern, without having attained the evolutionary stage of a palm.

Kusamaki

(Podocarpus macrophyllus)

... is actually endemic to Japan and southern China. The age of Hangar 7’s Kusamaki can be determined by its dimensions: This evergreen tree attains a stem diameter of 60 cm and grows up to 20 m in height.

The Olive Family

(Oleacea)

The Olive Family belongs to the oldest useful plants and has been cultivated since the 4th millennium BC. In the Mediterranean region alone there are over 1,000 different sorts, which differ enormously in taste. Trees of the Olive Family can reach an age of up to 2,000 years and can grow up to 20 metres in height.

The Australian Grass Tree

(Xanthorrhoea johnsonii)

This plant, which is found solely in Australia, is called “Black Boy” by locals due to it soot-blackened appearance. The frequent bushfires leave the plants almost entirely unscathed, as pieces of dead leaves remain on the stems and act as a protective shield against fire. In this way the trees are able to survive for up to 350 years.
