The Israel Prayer Garden in Corinth, Texas is a one-acre garden modeled after ancient maps of Israel’s twelve tribes. The garden includes the seven species mentioned in the Book of Deuteronomy — figs, grapes, pomegranates, wheat, barley, olive and date palm — and an unofficial eighth species, the almond. Other biblical plants can be found throughout the garden, such as myrtle, willow, salvias, and selected flowers and herbs. The garden also has several permanent features reflecting a Judeo-Christian theme.
