We have a date for the FREE once-a-year Exotica Tropicals Garden Tour in Melbourne Beach. My HOA allows me to have a ‘yard sale’ but once a year and the date for 2014 is Sunday September 14th from 9:30 am to 1:00 PM
IF WEATHER IS BAD, WE WILL RESCHEDULE FOR THE NEXT SUNDAY
The self guided garden tour is free and I will be on hand to answer any questions about plants in the garden. Some notable specimens include a large mature and flowering/fruiting Sausage Tree, large Rainbow Eucalyptus, flowering Ylang Ylang Trees, huge Philodendron giganteum, x Evansii and subincisum. Many types of Palms, flowering Orchids, Anthurium, Cordyline, Heliconia and Ginger.
In addition to the Free Garden Tour- there will also be a unique selection of plants for sale- this will be a different selection of plant stock than is available at the nursery. Plants available for sale include unusual Cordyline, some large specimens of Philodendron- most likely including the huge and rare Philodendron x Evansii, ‘Water-Loving’ Philodendron paludicola as well as many other rare and unusual Philodendron and Monstera. There will also be Heliconia, Gingers (including the elusive “yellow buttons“) and many other interesting specimens.
WHAT’S NEW AT THE NURSERY-
Lots of cool stuff at the nursery these days- we’ve got an excellent specimen of Heliconia Pedro Ortiz a bright red pendant/upright hybrid. We also have some Variegated Shampoo Ginger- very nice with bright blooms that form from the base. The variegated foliage is a plus!
We also have some nice Ylang Ylang Trees in 3 gal pots, approx 5 feet tall, as well as some Thai Black Bananas and a Strawberry Tree (tasty edible fruit) available as well as all our other exotic specimens.
Stop in this week and check out the ever-changing selection! The nursery is open Wed-Sat 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM
