The botanical garden is 22.5 hectares (0.225 km²), with 8,000 plant species, including 143 recorded in the Ukraine's Red Book of Rare Species. The Garden is famous for its exotic plants: it has the biggest collection of succulents among the countries of the former Soviet Union.

The greenhouse, which was built for the largest and the oldest palm trees in Northern Eurasia, is among the highest in the world.
