The Historical Viewpoint is home to a collection of the Adansonia genus comprising 20 different specimens of the A. grandidieri, A. suarezensis, A. rubrostipa, A. madagascariensis, A. za, A. perrieri, A. digitata and A. gibbosa species. These trees have been grown from seeds acquired between 2004 and 2005 in Germany and the Reunion Isles by Rafael Cabrera, who works with La Concepcion and is responsible for their germination, development and acclimatisation.
