Designed by Frederick MacMonnies in 1890, the statue depicts Pan – the ancient god of shepherds who protects and guards the flocks – in idealized human form playing his enchanted pipe of reeds. It is a fitting name and symbol for a garden that serves to protect and showcase Florida’s indigenous plants.

The one-half acre garden features over 300 species of native trees, shrubs, grasses and wild flowers, many of which are endangered.
