Summer Spotlight

Each of the 25 display gardens at Mounts Botanical Garden is a living exhibit, with plants chosen specifically to tell a story about home gardening in a challenging subtropical climate. The gardens illustrate what Palm Beach County residents can emulate in their own spaces, large or small. The Summer Spotlight explores key elements of gardening in South Florida.
