The Garden of Well-Being is a beautiful garden showcasing plants that are used for fragrance, health, teas, flavoring and in ceremonies.  Some featured plants are miracle fruit, a cocoa tree (also known as the chocolate tree) and rosemary. The Garden of Extremes showcases plants that tolerate adverse situations found in the landscape, such as dry soil, poor soil, high wind and high light. The Begonia Border has a pleasing design and displays one of the best foliage and flowering plants available in Palm Beach County.

“We are thrilled to welcome the community to celebrate the dedication of our three new fabulous gardens with us,” said Allen Sistrunk, Director at Mounts Botanical Garden. “With the new additions to our garden, we hope to bring more people over to learn and enjoy all that our garden has to offer.”
