★ Gardens and wild places of botanical beauty ★
From grand formal gardens planned by noted landscape architects like Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr., to greenhouses full of orchids for sale and deep, dark cypress swamps along Florida's coast, the flora of Florida has captivated visitors since Ponce De Leon first visited "La Florida," land of flowers.
Archived by many botanists across the centuries, including William Bartram, Henry Perrine, and Henry Nehrling, Florida's botanical bounty is unsurpassed in variety for a state of its size.
Florida's Gardens treats you to man-made delights - botanical research gardens, arboretums, and public gardens - as well as nature's own gardens and groves, habitats overflowing with unique flora, and landmark trees. Each is presented with visually-striking slide shows, interactive maps, and details about what makes each particular destination a treasure, including identification of many of the plants and flowers.
