The Kapnick Caribbean Garden features a spectacular collection of towering palms, tropical fruits and vegetables, and many of the plumeria species from which the colorful and fragrant cultivars were hybridized. These plumeria, or frangipani, are a part of the Garden’s National Plumeria Collection, which includes over 500 cultivars, varieties, and species. The garden captures the history of the islands told through plants, ranging from the Pre-Columbian era through an explorers Garden with Post-European flora. Play steel drums in the Caribbean House, try your hand at bocce ball on the lawn or relax in the garden’s hammocks.
