Twenty five major collections make up Kanapaha Botanical Gardens. The collections include the largest herb garden in the Southeast and Florida’s largest display of bamboos. During warm months visitors can see giant Victoria water lilies and Asian snake arums. June - September offer the most color.

Kanapaha Botanical Gardens is very user friendly, with benches and gazebos - you may come across a wedding, reception or conference as you stroll. Kanapaha offers a gift shop that offers original art and treasures from the natural world. Kanapaha hosts the Annual Spring Garden Festival, the region’s premier horticultural event featuring more than 200 booths offering landscape displays, arts and crafts, plants, educational materials, and food. Kanapaha Botanical Gardens is operated by the North Florida Botanical Society, a non-profit educational organization. The name is derived from the Timucua Indian words for “palmetto leaf” and “house” referring to thatched dwellings of the village on the shore of nearby Lake Kanapaha.
