Our garden plant collection

27,000 taxa… in one place

Is a lot of plants! Please excuse the dust from our keyboards and plant archives as we are working on this page.

Plant database – coming soon!

Please excuse what is a work in progress, but it is our hope to eventually direct all Juniper Level Botanic Garden (JLBG) label QR code scans to a resource where you can get more information about each plant. Creating a searchable database for 27000 plants is a massive undertaking. Please send chocolates to our IT staff to help speed up the process.

In the meantime…
