Blue African Iris, yellow and orange Reed Orchids, red Weeping Hibiscus and an astounding variety of flowering plants, herbs and tropical trees create a stunning rainbow of petals and leaves in the Moorings Botanical Gardens.
Built in 1974, the gardens have been tended to by expert gardeners and botanists. The collection of plants are constantly being added to, and today this vibrant garden is cared for by Anita Force Marshall.
- The garden is intertwined around a popular beach side resort. Spread over 6 acres, the resort is quiet and close to numerous sights. Fragrant flowers, lectures on shells and a close proximity to the beach ensures a soothing stay just seconds away from the Garden.
- There are hundreds of native plants and non-invasive tropical species which include collections of bromeliads, cacti, hibiscus, orchids, palms, fruits, and cycads. The species of flowers that are in bloom changes every month, and you can check out the official website to see which flowers are in bloom when you’re visiting.
- Along with the plants, you’ll find butterflies, birds, rabbits, turtles and many other animals.
