Selby Gardens Today

Since the Gardens opened, the property has doubled in size from seven to over 14 acres. The elegant Mansion on adjoining property was purchased in 1973 and now houses the Gardens' Museum. The Gardens maintains a plant collection numbering more than 20,000 greenhouse plants, plus thousands more in the outdoor gardens. Eight greenhouses include the stunning Tropical Conservatory where unusual flora can be seen year round. The Botany Department provides headquarters for the Bromeliad, Gesneriad, and Orchid Research Centers, and the Selby Gardens' Herbarium and Molecular Laboratory. Marie Selby Botanical Gardens has, in short, become a respected center for research and education, as well as a famous showplace that delights more than 180,000 visitors each year.

    You might want to check to see if they will allow tripods. In the past they only allowed tripods in the greenhouse once a month. Outside is no problem.

    Selby Gardens allows tripods outside, not in the conservatory. Sorry.
