Welcome to the Alcatraz Florilegium Gallery

The Alcatraz Florilegium consists of 127 drawings and paintings documenting the plants of the Gardens of Alcatraz. The story of the gardens is a fascinating one and our members are pleased to be involved in this important project to document the plants.

We will be publishing a catalog of these images soon. Meanwhile, we encourage you to enjoy them online!

There are a number of different types of plants depicted:

You can click on each of the images to see a larger version, and if the artist has a page in our Members’ Gallery, clicking on the button will take you the artist’s entry.
