I just returned from a wonderful week on the Island. I have been hearing about the Botanical Gardens at a Condo Complex, but did not expect what I found.
The Sanibel Moorings Resort was built in 1974 and the garden began at that time as well. Over the years many gardeners have left their footprint on this 6 acre oasis. This very unique wildlife oasis is home to hundreds of native plants and non-invasive tropical plants. It includes collections of bromeliads, cacti, hibiscus, orchids, palms, fruits, and cycads and in a wildlife friendly environment.
The Complex offers tours and self-guided tours as well. It is a $5.00 donation but so worth the time and money. Just check in at the Office for the guide! All the plants are labeled and a wonderful brochure provides great information. I will be returning each visit to Sanibel.
