Juniper Level Botanic Garden - An Ex-Situ Conservation Garden
Our Mission is to Collect, Study, Propagate, and Share
As of 2020, JLBG has just over 27,000 taxa of living plants, making the collection one of the most diverse in the world. Fundraising for an operational endowment to preserve the garden is underway, administered by NC State University. If you'd like to help preserve the gardens and plant collections for future generations, you can do so with a tax-deductible contribution at JLBG.org and click on the Donate Link.
At Juniper Level Botanic Garden, part of our mission is to educate and share both plants and information. This photo/informational gallery is devoted to cataloging as many forms as possible. It is our hope that this photographic study gallery can also prevent duplicate use of names and prevent confusion in the trade.
Typhonium is a genus in the Araceae family, currently comprising 72 species. Typhonium are found in Eastern and Southern Asia, New Guinea, and Australia. In 2000, the genus Sauromatum and Typhonium was combined under the typhonium name, but in 2010, with the advent of better DNA testing, the two genera were once again separated.
Typhonium was a focus of our adjunct researcher, Alan Galloway, who passed away in 2020, so this gallery is to celebrate his work, and continue to recognize many of the new species that he was working to describe when he passed away.
