Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden

Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is a real gem of the sunniest state in Florida. It is almost 36 hectares of fertile land filled with tropical plants. Thus, it is the largest botanical garden in Miami, dotted with greenery.

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

History

It was Robert Montgomery who in 1936 created this botanical garden in Miami. 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 a great doctor, and also traveled a lot. This man also did much to make this place popular throughout America. Moreover, the massive African baobab is still growing in the garden, which is planted by Fairchild.

As for the landscape, it was implemented by Frederick Olmsted - one of the best US designers of the last century.

A trace in science

Fairchild Botanical Garden is a large-scale gardening business. The garden has become the parent home of many tropical and subtropical flowers and plants that are on the verge of extinction. For more than 70 years, scientists have managed to assemble a grand collection of stunning samples. With the help of the images we managed to witness the sensational scientific discoveries, as well as to look at the palm DNA and other interesting studies.

Worth seeing

Special excursions on trams are constantly held in the Fairchild garden, thanks to which you can enjoy lakes, streams and waterfalls of unearthly beauty. Of course, animals and birds populating this oasis will not be overlooked.

Nearly 5 thousand plants adorn this wonderful garden. These are magnificent ferns, orchids, coral trees, unusual palm trees and many other incredible specimens of fabulous flora. With a certain luck, it will be possible to see the blossoms of a huge titanic amorphofallus. This botanical garden in Miami is not at all considered one of the largest in the USA!
