Naples Botanical Garden invites the community to free pre-registered visits
Naples Botanical Garden invites the community to pre-registered visitations of their Tropical Mosaic Garden. Currently closed to the general public due to expansion, the Garden will offer the visiting opportunities free of charge. To register, call 239-643-7275.
The cooler night temperatures of fall can produce subtle shifts of color, tender new growths, or trigger some plants like the Brunfelsias to flower. The Garden has several hugging the loggia that beckon with their scent, hence their common name, Ladies of the Night. The flowers usually are trumpet shaped but vary from yellow (B. lactea) to cream (B.‘Isola’), or cream with shades of blue (B. Americana). The most dramatic and well known is B. pauciflora, whose flowers change from purple, to pale lavender, to white.
Visiting times are 9:00 am – 12:00 pm unless otherwise noted.
