The Anniston Museum Courtyard has the lush look of the tropics, reminiscent of a hot, humid climate near the equator. Palms and bananas — the largest public collection in Alabama — are the heart of this courtyard garden microhabitat. It is accented with spectacular flowering plants like hibiscus, lantana, oleander, cannas, and ginger-lilies. The tropical look is one of flamboyant form and contrast, punctuated with sensational colorful blossoms! At its hub is a towering abstract sculpture spouting water into a pool filled with darting koi carp. Come to where the hibiscus unfolds, palm trees sway, and banana plants grow tall.
