Located at the University of South Florida, this place is of utmost importance for botany and biology students. The staff is quite knowledgeable enough and will guide you in the best way for selection of herbarium specimen. You will get to see many native plants here with their scientific name written on them. There are specific areas beside each plant where you will get to know about their habitat. There is a butterfly garden at the farthest corner where you will find other species of turtles and birds too. You can also come here during the plant sales in the spring season and buy some rare fruits and flowers too.

USF Botanical Gardens Reviews & Ratings
Gardens were okay. Kinda of a naturalized look. Some species of plants were missing identification signs. Good prices on limited supply plants. Local honey available for sell. Where else can you see a HUGE cow statue?
Went to the plant sale. It was great. They are doing good work educating the public regarding the need to plant native species in my yard to keep the habitat that the bugs and birds rely on to survive. I didn't know bugs here can't eat foreign trees and plants. That when we plow the landscape and put a house we need to put back native shrubs and trees so the birds and butterflies don't starve.
What a beautiful diamond in the rough, who'd ever known such beautiful scenery. Very attractive nature path. Alot of educational perks about plants and green life. This place is big enough for a nice romantic date or a trip for the kids. Very diverse environment, that is quite enjoyable. I definitely recommend stopping by and very affordable for the family.
Great selection of local plants at affordable prices. Love that they also sell local honey and have a course of beekeeping as well. I use to take long walks on the Bonsai Garden but its empty now... Overall 5 out of 5 stars
Great place to visit with the kids or grand-kids. Always good advice and help. Their special events are well worth going to.
