WELCOME TO GARDENS OF THE WORLD!

Gardens of the World.net is a website about gardens from various countries of the world. The gardens can be large or small, public or private, and can include parks, community gardens, or simply a street in bloom.

Depending on the country where they are located, gardens usually indicate which types of plants can be grown in the environment of that country in terms of climate. But there is an important exception – there’s always been a desire for people from different civilizations (including the past ones) to grow plants brought to them from travelers to distant countries and vice versa. This is one important way that plants got disseminated on the planet. For example, trees native to northeastern North America, such as the sugar maple, can be found growing in New Zealand. The Japanese Maple, on the other hand, is a popular ornamental in North America. This plant dissemination is done for economic, ornamental and/or scientific purposes. And, of course, once thriving in their new location plants will keep covering more territory from their seeds.

Efforts have been made to identify all the plants shown, but some are still waiting for a name, and some might be wrongly identified.

To facilitate viewing, the gardens are listed by country:

AUSTRALIA
CANADA
JAPAN
NEW ZEALAND
USA

More countries will be added as this site expands.

Enjoy!
