Medicinal Plants Tour 

Plants have been used medicinally for thousands of years by people across the globe to help cure ailments – from common illnesses like sore throats and fevers, to enhancing digestion and promoting heart health. Our collection features over 2,000 medicinal plants from regions around the world. And that’s just a fraction of the estimated 35,000 – 50,000 known medicinal plants worldwide. During this tour, we’ll highlight some of our favorite plants with medicinal uses throughout our gardens.
