Today I visited McKee Botanical Garden, located in southern gateway to Vero Beach, Florida.
The garden is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a historic Florida landmark. It has been endorsed by The Garden Conservancy as a project of National Significance and received the Florida Trust’s “Outstanding Achievement in Landscape Architecture” in 2002.
McKee Botanical Garden is known for its 18-acre subtropical jungle hammock, filled with plants appropriate for horticultural growing zone 9B. This dense and diverse collection also features several restored architectural treasures.
