Welcome to Moringa Garden Circle!


Our Purpose

Welcome to Moringa! 

Located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, this circle was named for the spicy Moringa (horseradish) tree, which personifies this diverse, dynamic group devoted to all aspects of gardening.  We highly believe in learning while having fun, and our members and meetings prove that great plants, great people, and great food lead to knowledge and fun in the garden. 

About Us 

Visit the USF Atlas of Florida Plants, where you can find information on over 4,700 species of native or naturalized plants in Florida, including over 4,300 species of vascular plants and over 400 species of bryophytes (plants known only from cultivation are not included). The Atlas of Florida Plants is a joint effort by the Institute for Systematic Botany, the University of South Florida, and the USF Water Institute to provide a comprehensive searchable database of plants in the state of Florida. This website also provides access to the USF Herbarium, which houses about 300,000 specimens from around the world (about 2/3 of these are databased and available online).
