Use Of Tropical Plants In Healing

At American Fork Hospital in Utah there is a unique kind of garden that comes out each year. It is known as the "Healing Garden." The various types of plants they use you would not typically find in Utah let alone in most of the State. Above is a banana plant and quite large for a greenhouse special.

The use of palms and tropical yucca are beautiful. If this was not a hospital you could convince me this is anywhere in Mexico, Central America, or Hawaii.

Of course one of my favorite things to do is to just sit and listen to a waterfall. They are quite relaxing. I suppose they have the same type of attitude at the Healing Garden. I think it is great when a hospital can take care to put out so many beautiful plants and just for a moment give people a chance to take their minds off their health problems, work, or other concerns. Kudos to the gardener and landscaping teams at American Fork Hospital for this summer mini tropical paradise.
