EXPERIENCES AT THE GARDEN
Explore the only outdoor model of a tropical rainforest in the continental United States. Gentle mist and high humidity provide a nurturing environment for tropical habitat plants. Uncover a unique collection of mixed plant species from America, Africa, Asia, Australia, and the Pacific Islands.
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.
Based on similar structures Dr. David Fairchild observed in botanic gardens overseas, the 700-foot-long Pergola is a historic stone and wood arbor structure adorned with beautiful blooming vines. Stroll underneath at every visit and become rewarded with the world’s most incredible flowers of the season.
The Tropical Plant Conservatory, historically known as the Rare Plant House, is where plants needing extra warmth or particular care are grown. New, rare plants are sometimes introduced to this environment until full understanding of their needs are known. As a result, the Conservatory is an ever-changing display of some of the rarest and most recently discovered tropical plants.
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.
