MESOAMERICA AREA: This sunny slope at the southeast corner of the Garden features a unique collection of plants including many utilized by the Aztecs in Mexico and the Mayans in Mexico and Central America. The western end of this area features a cloud forest habitat display. The oak-pine woodland at the eastern end recreates habitats from the highlands of Mexico and Guatemala. Rich in salvias (Salvia) and penstemons (Penstemon), this is one of the most floriferous areas of the Garden, especially in winter. Hummingbirds are most easily observed in this collection. It is always a cool lush area as in this mid-winter view.
