Do take the time to read the sign in the first photo.
The garden's goal is to show Florida as it used to be, with 300 species of palms, 200-year old Live Oaks, "Champion" trees such as the Bread Nut, Topical Hazel Nut, Indian Jujube, and West Indian Catalpa to name a few, along with citrus groves, wetland, and native hammock areas.
Note: Champion trees are the largest documented trees of their species in the state
I was impressed with their brochure comment:
"We ask that you take nothing but pictures and leave nothing but footprints."
