Welcome to the National Tropical Botanical Garden

We work across five botanical gardens and throughout the tropics to grow a brighter tomorrow for plants and all they sustain. We do so through a biocultural approach, where Indigenous knowledge, community priorities, and scientific research guide our path forward. Together, we will restore flourishing relationships between plants, people, and places.

It’s our 60th anniversary! Discover all the ways to celebrate
