What’s Blooming in the Garden: May 12

What’s Blooming in the Garden: May 12

You don’t even have to enter the gates to see spectacular new blooms at the Garden. From the parking lot to the entry gate there plants thriving as Garden volunteer Georgiann Keller points out in this week’s “What’s Blooming in the Garden.” She also points out the intriguing diversity of nature within a family of plants, like the various Crown of thorn plants blooming in different shades of red, yellow and orange throughout the Garden, and the uniquely different Octillo plants now bloom. Keller offers a unique perspective for those who will soon be visiting the Garden and helps provide some background to these beautiful plants so you can appreciate them even more.
