Linnaeus Garden was designed by the landscape architect Ulf Nordfjell. He has created a modern Linnaeus tribute garden that reflects today's interest in architecture, art, design, nature and gardens. Familiar wild varieties are displayed in simple arrangements with typical Linnaeus varieties, all framed by traditonal Swedish materials such as granite, timber and steel.
