An outstanding collection of citrus plants, well labeled. The black and white map they provide is hard to read; it was useless for keeping me well located. Regret that TripAdvisor did not give me the option of posting a picture a colored map.

This was an extra charge. Don't think it is really worth the visit. Uninspiring garden, a lot of it was sectioned off.
