Conservation Garden

The bloom stalk of the St. Croix Century Plant (Agave eggersiana), endemic to the island of St. Croix.

The Conservation Garden is one of St. George’s most recent collections and contains rare and endangered species of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

Signage and labeling throughout the area depicts the need for conservation of these species as well as the reasons for their potential extinction.

St. George Village is an Affiliate Member of the Center for Plant Conservation – the only national organization dedicated exclusively to preventing the extinction of America’s threatened flora. The Garden reflects this concern in its Mission Statement, by exhibiting these plants to visitors and in monitoring their growth.
