Ever wanted to to see what a real mango and banana plant look like? Well in the Tropical Garden area at the Florida Botanical Gardens you have a chance to see these plants in a tropical setting. This tropical garden has towering trunks of over a dozen different varieties of banana and plantain. I had a chance to observe how a pineapple grows and find the source of sugar. There were other different plants in the garden such as citrus, papaya and other exotic fruits are here for all to enjoy.
I also had a chance to wander through the Butterfly Garden and observe the assortment of butterflies. I was able to see the nectar and host plants that attract these beautiful creatures butterflies. The best part of this garden was that I was able to check out the Butterfly Garden grounds and to see what ideas that I can include to my own landscape.
