Mounts Botanical Garden displays tropical and subtropical plants from around the world, including plants native to Florida, exotic trees, tropical fruit, herbs, citrus, palms and much more. As a component of the Palm Beach County Cooperative Extension Service, and through its affiliation with the University of Florida, Mounts is the place to connect with Extension Horticulturists, Master Gardeners, the Florida Yards and Neighborhoods Program, and professional horticultural advisors. Through Mounts’ classes and workshops, visitors may access the best available talent to help them appreciate and enjoy South Florida.
Plants from six continents grace Mounts Botanical Garden’s fourteen acres and reflect the tremendous horticultural opportunities provided by Palm Beach County’s unique growing environment. From temperate North American trees to the rarest of tropical fruits, from Florida natives to edible landscapes, from aquatics to arid-land plants, Mounts offers something for every taste and interest.
Visitors will find the information they need in many forms. Browse the collections to find the right tree for your needs or to look for new and interesting plants. Visit the bookstore for the best books on Florida gardening and nature. Bring your plant questions or problems to the Master Gardeners for resolution. Sign up for any of Mounts’ outstanding tours, workshops or lectures. Mounts is committed to seeing that you get the information you need.
Plant sales, family festivals and special workshops and classes are some of Mounts’ exciting special events. Three plant sales a year draw people from all over South Florida to buy the finest plants and garden accessories from over sixty vendors. The Fall Family Festival offers children and adults a day of fun and fantasy throughout the botanical garden. Special member-only events round out the calendar.
