The six gardens on this year's Native Plant Garden Tour include:

The Kesharvarz Garden

Palm Beach Gardens 33418

According to Lucy Keshavarz, the key to making her garden work in her golf course community was having the right plant in the right place. She credits the Florida Native Plant Society, and our PBC Chapter's annual native garden tour, for providing the vision and knowledge needed to make it happen. "After many fun meetings, hikes and talks with native experts I now have a garden that is an oasis of sustainability and beauty."

The Walter Garden

Karla & Steve Walter purchased their home in North Palm Beach in 1999 with the goal of transforming the landscape to create a native backyard.
