Montgomery Botanical Center has grown with Coral Gables, from a unique, out-of-the-way plant collection in 1932, to a thriving center for botany and horticulture, 85 years later. Coral Gables Museum will share the history of plant exploration by this nationally recognized living treasure. Montgomery Botanical Center was established as a private garden in 1932 and as a not-for-profit in 1959. Montgomery keeps living specimens from wild plant populations worldwide and holds National Collections of Palms, Cycads, and Tropical Conifers in a 120-acre botanic garden.
Montgomery Botanical Center Celebrates 85 Years in Coral Gables is made possible with the support of the City of Coral Gables.
