The Jardin botanique "Les Cèdres" (French pronunciation: [ʒaʁdɛ̃ bɔtanik lɛ sɛːdʁ]) (14 hectares), often called simply Les Cèdres or the Jardin de la villa "Les Cèdres", is a private botanical garden located at 57 Avenue Denis Séméria, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, Alpes-Maritimes, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France.
The garden was established in 1924 on the grounds of the villa "Les Cèdres", constructed in 1830 in the Sardinian style, once the property of King Leopold II of Belgium, and the most expensive home in the world. In 1924 the property was purchased by Alexandre Marnier-Lapostolle, founder of the society of Grand Marnier. In 1928 his son Julien intensified the cultivation of exotic plants. The Marnier-Lapostolle family used the garden to source the bitter oranges known as bigarades which they used to flavour Grand Marnier. Since 1976 the garden has been owned by the Société des Produits Marnier-Lapostolle, which was acquired by Campari in 2016.
