Naples Botanical Garden invites the community to free pre-registered summer visits
Naples Botanical Garden invites the community to preregistered 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 Tropical Mosaic Garden is springing to life with increasing soil and night temperatures. Exciting plants such as Arums (Amorphophallus spp.), Summer tulip (Curcuma spp.), and deciduous Gingers (Zingiber spp.) are arising from the earthen shadows. Trees that have been bare of foliage are exploding with color and fresh growth. New fragrances fill the air as blooming shrubs and vines welcome the busy pollinators. Be sure to check on the Rangoon Creeper (Quisqualis indica) growing on the arbor. It is just covered in blooms that change color from white to pink to red. It is spectacular! (The walk is along shell pathways in the 1.5-acre garden.)
