The garden elements featured in the image below have been created with the lead gift from Mr. Charles H. Smith. In addition to building the access roads and parking lot, the University graded and seeded the areas shaded in green. (Since the master plan for the botanic gardens was last revised in 2006, the initial plantings for a "Tropical Grove" and a "Grove of the Ancients" have been added to Phase I of the H. O. Botanic Gardens.)
