Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden

For over fifteen years, Niki Pinko has been handcrafting in Key West, Florida. My Nikistiks are two-pronged hair sticks made from exotic woods from around the world and also from local trees. I also make collectables under Little Pieces of Key West with antique painted wood and vintage linoleum from Key West houses. Please, join us this weekend at the Garden, on Sunday, 10-3 for day 2 of GardenFest Key West to see what all of vendors have to offer ... See MoreSee Less

We’ve been green since 1989

We're frost free

The Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden is the only frost-free botanical garden in the continental United States! A tropical environment with ample rain allows most trees to retain their leaves in the dry season (December through late May).

 

We love our native plants

The Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden is a special place where you can appreciate biodiversity and learn more about its importance. We are home to many endangered and threatened flora and fauna. Unlike traditional botanical gardens, this garden advocates the importance of native plants and species through education in a natural conservation habitat. 

Three, rare fresh-water ponds

The Garden has three of the last remaining freshwater ponds in the Keys and is a major migratory stopping point for neotropical birds from places as far away as South America, as well as being home to many rare birds in the Florida Keys. Enjoy this unique US tropical forest and garden and a chance to see hundreds of different butterflies, birds, plants and beautiful flowers.
