Kanapaha is a very lovely natural gardens...I've visited at all seasons and there are always a wide variety of plants to see - 62-acres of great walks.
The water gardens are very interesting; the hummingbird and butterfly gardens generally have blooming flowers; the rock gardens have such unusual plants for dry areas; the herb garden is outstanding; and everyone loves the collection of bamboo.
The garden changes depending on the season, of course, and depending on what one likes (flowers, trees, tropical growth, natural settings, etc.) there is always something to enjoy.
We can picnic, take our dog, and spend the whole day for a small amount of money. What else could we ask for!
We chose the gardens for a birthday picnic in February. DEAD! DEAD! DEAD! The only colors in the garden were some planted pansies in the hummingbird garden other than the artificial flowers in the visitors center. The bamboo was green, however, and relaxing.
I feel there should have been a sign posted saying something to the effect that due to the cold weather, the garden was mostly brown in color.
I felt that this garden needed much tending.
Do not go in winter expecting to see colors or blooming flowers.
As you stroll through the bamboo forest, you can almost forget where you are.Come and get lost and inspired in the beautiful landscape and observe Florida wildlife.Bring binoculars for viewing birds,insects,and of course Gators!!!!!!
We often like to take day trips with a 2-3 hour drive time from home. So, without a lot of prior planning we found Kanapaha listed on the web. It was worth the drive. The entrance was well marked and Kanapaha's staff was very friendly. The different garden areas were interesting; bamboo, butterfly garden, water features, etc. You must see the amazing pelican vine when it is in bloom!
Kanapaha Botanical Gardens is a wonderful place for the whole family. You should never do drugs when you go here or you will have many flashbacks about your past life as a russian working girl. Sorry, Dakota made me say that..the flowers are great...wooohooo..yeah!
