Florida Botanical Gardens

The Florida Botanical Gardens are home to a wide variety of plants from around the world. Our collections have a value for teaching, interpretation, conservation or just for aesthetics, each and every specimen is carefully chosen and carefully placed. You will find most plants labeled, telling visitors more about the plants they are enjoying. The label gives the common name, scientific name and a quick overview of the things the plant need for best growth and health. Learn about the 90 acres of wetland, pine flatwoods, oak forest and critically endangered scrubland that we manage, right here on site! Over 150 types of bird, mammals, and reptiles have been documented on site. Several endangered or threatened species including Bald Eagles, Gopher tortoises and Sherman Fox squirrels make their home here. There are also a number of threatened or endangered plants found on site.
