BBG Florilegium Society

The Brooklyn Botanic Garden Florilegium Society, comprised of some of the country's most accomplished botanical artists, is reinvigorating the centuries-old form of illustrations which describe living collections of flowering plants. Established in 2000, the florilegium documents the Garden's living collections in watercolor, pen and ink, and other media and preserves the specimens in BBG's 250,000-specimen herbarium. Florilegium society artists and BBG botanists and gardeners collaborate in this perfect marriage of art and science.

This project would not be possible without the enthusiasm and generosity of BBG Florilegium Society fellows and members. The Garden is grateful for their participation in this exceptional effort.
