Fodor's Review

Some 2,000 plant species, tropical and subtropical, flourish on 17 acres. The German owner named the facility, affiliated with an ornamental-plant exporter, after his late plant-loving mother. About half of the garden's pathways are wheelchair accessible. The services of a guide cost an extra $25 for groups of up to 15 people.
