Tropical conifer collection in Miami
Last Thurs. I visited the Montgomery Botanic Center in Miami. This is the former estate of Col. Montgomery who was the founder of Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. It is located just down the street from FTBG. They are a private research facility with one of the worlds premier palm and cycad collections. There are some older conifers there but they have started a collection of tropical and subtropical species. Lots of young plants in the ground and a whole lot more growing in the shadehouse. It will be a spectacular collection in the future. They are working with the Atlanta BG and Kew Gardens. Click on the link for some photos of some of the plants I saw, there are 2 pages.
