Fairchild Botanical Gardens

fairchild-gardens

One of my favorite places in the Miami area to go and get lost is Fairchild Tropical Botanical Gardens. This place has some of the most dramatic implementations of plant biodiversity imaginable. The gardens were established in 1935 honoring one of the world’s greatest botanists, Dr. David Fairchild. Fairchild worked for the US Department of Agriculture and was responsible for identifying plant species all over the world which could be cultivated for commercial application in the US. Many of the plant species in the Gardens are rare or endangered while others are specimen examples of the species from across the planet. One of the goals of garden design is to engineer a constantly changing landscape and Fairchild Gardens lives up to this challenge — that’s why I never tire of wandering through the gardens. These images were taken late October 2012. They are from the water gardens and butterfly garden; just a sample of the beauty to be experienced.
