Botanical Preservation

Botanical Co-Evolutionary Garden Layout

 

Garden Layout

We host a great deal of worldwide tropical and dry tropical plants, arranged by their botanical relationships for better understanding of their interconnectedness, families, and orders.

 

Focusing on rare, endangered plants and their varieties, as well as useful plants; edible, medicinal, construction, fibers, etc. We promote  and propagate botanical diversity.

 

The garden features over 3000 plant species from tropical and subtropical regions of the world on 11 acres of land. The property is situated near the Tropic of Cancer on the East Cape of Baja California Sur, Mexico.

 

Diversity

Our collections include the species of the Zingiberales order, together with those of the Commelinales order, that are thought to have evolved around 80 million years ago during the Late Cretaceous:
