The 170-acre Naples Botanical Garden opened to the public in 2009 and I’m glad attending the Florida Outdoor Writer Association Annual Conference in Naples this week allowed me to visit this amazing collection of botanicals.

Naples is located at 26th latitude north. The subtropical climate allows the garden to display plants between that latitude and 26th latitude south including from Asia, the Caribbean, Brazil and of course, Florida.

The garden is a collection of smaller gardens and simply, they are stunning. I’ll let some of my photos do the talking.

Naples Botanical Garden is open daily 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is located in East Naples, Florida, about 90 minutes south of my Port Charlotte home. (4820 Bayshore Drive, Naples, Fla., naplesgarden.org;; tel: (239) 643-7275)
