Synopsis
Heathcote Botanical Gardens is located on the southeast coast of Florida, in USDA Plant Hardiness zone 9b. It is uniquely situated in a biological transition zone between a warm-temperate zone to the north and a subtropical zone to the south. A transition zone contains species that are characteristic of the adjacent region to its north and south, as well as species that occur only in the transition zone. In the botanical world this is advantageous because it allows for greater diversity, which means that one may grow many kinds of plants from around the world that live under conditions associated with three climatic zones. The garden has a wide variety of plants containing both native Florida flora as well as exotic flora from around the world as found in the Mediterranean climates to the Tropics.
