Harvey E. Kapnick gifted $5 million in 2000 which enabled the garden board to purchase the land. The garden closed from June 2008 to November 2009 for major development work. It showcases plants native to the tropics and subtropics from the 26th latitude north (the latitude of Naples) and the 26th latitude south. The Brazilian Garden was designed by Raymond Jungles and the focal point is an original ceramic mural by Roberto Burle Marx. There is also a Children's Garden, Caribbean Garden and a 90 acre nature reserve. The Florida Garden and Asian Garden are still in development.
