To promote, conserve and stimulate the appreciation, study and development, preservation and re-establishment of native and cultivated plants of all kinds.

The Mobile Botanical Gardens is a non-profit organization and we rely on the financial support of the local community and our visitors to continue our mission of preserving the natural aspects and showcasing the cultivated collections of our 100-acre site.

Established in 1974 by a dedicated group of horticulturists to preserve the natural aspects of the local environment, the Gardens have grown and developed into a garden oasis for the community.

Dedicated to preserving native plants and to educating the community, the Mobile Botanical Gardens provides experiences that help visitors of all ages appreciate and benefit from our unique Gulf Coast environment.

The Gardens serve as a living classroom for residents and visitors alike. By providing a sense of place, we endeavor to instill passion for nature, and promote interest in gardening, conservation, and outdoor activities.

The South Alabama Botanical and Horticultural Society was incorporated October 22, 1970 under the Alabama Non-Profit Corporation Act of 1955.

In September 1974, operating as Mobile Botanical Gardens, the Society entered into an agreement with the City of Mobile, and undertook the responsiblity of developing and managing a 65 acre tract across from Langan Park as a nature area and botanical garden.

The Mobile Botanical Gardens has evolved to include several major plant collections, including the WinterGarden’s collection of historical and modern camellia varieties, the Rhododendron Garden’s collections of azaleas, and the preservation and conservation of the Longleaf Treasure Forest.

Future plans include an Entrance Building, development of the mixed Woodland Trails, and more retail opportunities.

With support from the community we aim to showcase native and cultivated plants, while preserving natural areas to become a premier botanical showcase on the Gulf Coast.
