The flora and blossoms: The main attraction of the Company Garden is its vast variety of flora. The lush green carpeted lawn of the Company Gardens is covered with more than 800 types of flowering plants, and during the late spring till the end of monsoon, most of these flowers are in bloom - making the place look like the heaven's garden.
