Specialty Collections

In addition to the beauty provided by the Garden, JLBG focuses on preserving the genetic germplasm through ex-situ conservation, conducting scientific and taxonomic research, plant breeding, and then propagating the resulting plants, making them widely available. JLBG also works to clarify the mis-information and nomenclature issues in this industry by assembling complete collections of specific plant groups.
