Unfortunately this part is roped off and not part of the tour and I could not get close enough to see what type of plant it was but It appears to be either some sort of shrub that is planted in rows then trained on trellises that form the box shaped tunnels. I think that maybe part of the reason why it is not part of the tour is twofold. First people would enjoy wandering around through the tunnels of leaves and two ... they want people moving in one direction to ensure that the line keeps moving.
Well that is my assessment.
So you get out of the first part of the greenhouses, taking a right where you will see the rest of the Palace of Laken which as you will see is actually connected to the Greenhouse complex.
