The Kathleen and Scott Kapnick Brazilian Garden, designed by Burle Marx protégé Raymond Jungles, reflects the famed architect’s visionary work. Burle Marx introduced a wide range of native Brazilian plants to gardeners, including nearly 50 species, cultivars, and varieties named in his honor. The Kapnick Brazilian Garden features many of these namesake plants along with significant collections of South American palms, aroids and bromeliads.
The winding, concrete pathway flanks a water feature and takes guests to a brightly colored mosaic wall created by the famed designer himself. It is the only such Burle Marx piece on permanent display in the United States.
