Interesting Info
  • In 2018 we had two Titan Arums bloom in our Greenhouses. Titan Arum bloom events occur rarely throughout the world's botanical gardens.
  • We are free and open to the public and offer low-cost/free classes and tours for children and adults.
  • We have collections of native plants, orchids, cacti, tropical plants, spice and fruit plants, and a diversity of early plants such as ferns and spike mosses.
