It is very important that the giant garden managed to preserve rare species of plants, among which a sausage tree, cypresses, 170-meter vines of grapes and the "cannon tree tree" stand out. You will want to visit this place for the sake of numerous lakes, as well as the fantastic flora connecting the tropics and subtropics.

It was Robert Montgomery who created this botanical garden in Miami in 1936. He was not only a successful businessman and lawyer, but also a famous collector who traveled the world collecting vegetation. His best friend David Fairchild was an excellent doctor and traveled a lot. This man also did a lot to make this place popular throughout America. Moreover, a massive African baobab, which was planted by Fairchild, is still growing in the garden.

As for the landscape, it was implemented by Frederick Olmstead - one of the best designers in the USA of the last century.

Fairchild Botanical Garden is a major horticulture. The garden has become the parental home of many tropical and subtropical flowers and plants that are on the verge of extinction. For more than 70 years, scientists have been able to collect a grandiose collection of amazing samples.

Using the images, it was possible to testify to the sensational scientific discoveries, as well as to look at palm DNA and other interesting studies.
