Garden Herbarium

The Herbarium Collection of the St. George Village Botanical Garden is a collection of over 5,000 dried and pressed plant specimens which represent about 80% of the plant species known to be growing in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

These specimens are physical examples of plants that were collected at a documented location and time. There are examples of specimens that have been collected during the last 50 years which are no longer found growing in particular sites, but the herbarium specimen remains as proof it existed in a particular time and place. This very important research and historical collection is open to researchers by appointment only.
