Situated on 100 acres the Mobile Botanical Gardens are a blend of cultivated areas and natural habitats, including the Rhododendron Garden, Camellia Wintergarden, Fern Glade, Fragrance and Texture Garden, Japanese Maple Garden, Herb garden, and a Longleaf Pine habitat of 40 acres.
The Rhododendron Garden contains eight collections of approximately 1,000 evergreen and native azaleas. This is the most comprehensive rhododendron collection anywhere along the Gulf Coast. The Camellia Wintergarden is a collection of 500 camellias, 350 newly planted, with 75 planted over thirty years ago. Also of note is the Longleaf Pine Habitat, which is a preserved remnant of the great southern longleaf pine (Pinus palustris) ecosystem, an extremely diversified habitat, that once dominated the American South.
The Mobile Botanical Gardens is one of the gardens in the state to be featured on the Alabama Garden Trail.
