In the spring of 2017, artists from around the U.S., Australia, Chile and Japan came together for the second year of the National Tropical Botanical Garden Florilegium. Unlike other florilegia, artists spent two weeks working alongside one another, sharing and experiencing the garden together. This work session produced the stunning pieces being exhibited, today. Botanic illustration is a perfect example of the nexus between the arts and science, where accurate depiction is of primary importance but the artistry and intentions of the artist is allowed shine through. 

Florilegia are steeped in tradition with roots dating to the 16th century. Some Florilegia, like the Banks’ Florilegium, record plants found on vast voyages of exploration. Today, they continue to be a vibrant, dynamic, and effective way of documenting flora from a particular region or collection in a botanic garden. NTBG is proud to support the tradition of botanical illustration through educational courses, internships, and special projects.
