What’s in Bloom?

  • Primavera
    Kapnick Brazilian Garden

    Tabebuia donnell-smithii

    Primavera is currently blooming in the southwest corner of the Kapnick Brazilian Garden; you can get a great view of it from the Lake Tupke trail. This drought-tolerant native of Central and South America blooms all at once just before new leaves appear. If you have a moment, stand underneath this tree and watch flowers gently twirl to the ground -- and be on the lookout for the sulphur butterflies that have been frolicking in the canopy lately. The yellow wings of these butterflies can be tricky to distinguish from the falling blossoms!

  • Hanging Clerodendrum
    Lea Asian Garden

    Clerodendrum wallichii

    Hanging clerodendrum is blooming in the Lea Asian Garden. Also known as bridal veil, Wallich's gloryblower, and nodding clerodendrum, this fall-blooming shrub is native to southeast Asia. Look for it growing near the mouth of the "river" in the Asian Garden.

  • Hong Kong Orchid
    LaGrippe Orchid Garden

    Bauhinia x blakeana

    Blooming from early November to late March, the Hong Kong Orchid with its purple flowers and evergreen leaves is a majestic addition to the Garden landscape. The bloom has been adopted as the floral emblem of Hong Kong for its beauty.

  • Pink Muhlygrass
    Throughout the Garden

    Muhlenbergia capillaris

    Pink muhlygrass is currently blooming throughout the area, including its many locations at Naples Botanical Garden. Noted for its airy masses of fall flowers, pink muhlygrass can be found growing in prairies and other open areas from New England south through Florida and west to Kansas. As you're driving through Naples, you might also notice pink muhlygrass adding an ethereal quality to some of our local road medians.

  • Silk Floss Tree
    Kapnick Brazilian Garden

    Ceiba speciosa

    Silk Floss are always a favorite in the Garden. Note its spiked trunk and later in the season, its pods which burst with cotton-like material, which were used as stuffing for car seats and flotation devices decades ago!

  • Semaphore pricklypear
    Kapnick Caribbean Garden

    Consolea corallicola

    Semaphore pricklypear is a federally-listed endangered species that is endemic to south Florida. You'll probably want to be very careful around this cactus, but do cautiously take a closer look: the bases of its spines are hot pink! You can find it blooming now at the south end of the Kapnick Caribbean Garden.
