“Very nice”
Reviewed 1 February 2014 via mobile

We very much enjoyed our visit to the botanical gardens. The gardens are nicely done and quite pretty with a lot of variety. Most of the plants are clearly marked. We especially enjoyed the bromeliads. We would gladly return.

“Extensive Gardens”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

We visited on a rainy day. The gardens are extensive and the plants very well maintained. The only criticism wast the many of plant labels were nearly unreadable due to wear and weathering. We spent 90 minutes.

“Else Kientzler Botanical Garden”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Lovely relaxing and cool natural beauty under big trees. All tropical plants from palms and fruit trees to gingers, coleus, cacti, anthuriums huge and small,orchids, bromeliads and many many species of each. Laid out in flowing beds of color with water running through; impeccable result of many careful hands working hard but always with the artist's flair.

“Photo Ops!”
Reviewed 17 May 2013

I took a friend who is a flower photo enthusiast. She kept clicking away the entire time we were there - 3 hours as I recall. There are lots of varieties to see and smell and even buy. My friend was taken with the orchids, which are old hat to me as they grow in my backyard.
