Naturalized Forest

A plantation era flume runs through the naturalized forest, part of a sophisticated plantation water distribution system.

Covering approximately ½ acre, the Naturalized Forest affords garden visitors an opportunity to walk through an area of shrubs, trees, and vines similar to the “bush” on St. Croix.

Nothing has been planted in this forest which cannot be found growing naturally on the island. The pathway parallels Mint Gut, a dry riverbed, and passes through areas containing native species as well as introduced, naturalized varieties.
