The Caribbean Garden PUBLIC PROFILE

about the caribbean garden

The Kapnick Caribbean Garden is designed to give the visitor to Naples Botanical Garden a prism of landscapes through which to view the natural and cultural history of the islands of the Caribbean. A visitor touring the islands of the Caribbean today would encounter diverse landscapes ranging from mountain tropical forests with lush, exotic plants to low islands largely characterized by dry forests, savannahs and species of cactus and scrub.

The diverse landscapes of the Caribbean are often a reflection of a complex and varied human history. From the distribution of plants and entire plant communities by indigenous peoples, to the region's role as the gateway for the arrival of European explorers and their "Old World" plants for food and commercial uses.
