Tour Discovery Gardens:
Sub Tropical Garden

Here you will learn how to create the feel of a tropical rainforest.   As you wander along the curving walk you will view a collection of ferns, cycads, palms and broad leafed plants covering the ground under a canopy of trees.  Orchids and gingers are being added as the canopy of trees grows providing the needed shade.
