Make sure you check out the National Orchid Garden growing throughout the rainforest.
Fluttering, flying, flourishing…witness the transformation in real time at the Wings of the Tropics exhibit in The Clinton Family Conservatory. See hundreds of butterflies, in every color and size. If you’re lucky, you may even have one of them land on you!

Feast your eyes on the amazing multi-colored blooms and let the tranquil sounds of nature transport you to paradise. While you’re there, don’t forget to stop and sniff the flowers.
EXPERIENCES AT THE GARDEN
Take in the panorama of the Garden’s Lowlands and lakes from the Allée Overlook, a view that shouldn’t be missed. With its panoramic views, the Overlook provides a striking architectural counterpart to the narrow Bailey Palm Glade, which features a display of beautiful palms and provides a long, narrow view across the Garden’s landscape.
The Tropical Flowering Tree Arboretum is a 12-acre display of 740 species of tropical flowering trees, shrubs and vines, collected from all tropical regions of the world. Arranged by plant family, these collections show a magnificent diversity of form, structure, texture, color and fragrance. Don’t miss the Geiger Tropical Flower Garden featuring a lovely exhibit of colorful tropical flowering plants from around the world.
Fall in love with these thick, fleshy wonders of the plant world and learn about the strikingly different species in the Arid and Succulent Garden. These plants represent many families, but share one common environmental characteristic: they grow in places that most plants can’t, with very little precipitation, extremely well-draining soil, and high temperatures.
Pause and enjoy the beauty of nature in the special area of the Garden featuring a small pool and waterfall. Hand-selected as a memorial and designed in 1948, the Sunken Garden is a natural hole where the sea washed the soil from the soft limestone rock, creating a depression. Find peace in this lovely, quiet area for reflection.
The tropics are home to the world’s most amazing fruit trees, some too delicate and cold-sensitive to grow outdoors in Miami. The Whitman Tropical Fruit Pavilion is a conservatory-like structure for these special plants, providing extra warmth, ultra-pure water, acidic soil, and the humidity of a tropical cloud forest.
Soak in the beauty of Fairchild’s 11 lakes and 7 pools, including the Sibley Victoria Pool, the Tropical Plant Conservatory and Rare Plant House Pools, Amphitheater pool, the Sunken Garden pool and waterfall, and more. There are also stunning water features in the Wings of the Tropics and Simons Rainforest exhibits.
