What’s in Bloom?

  • Crepe Myrtle
    Lea Asian Garden

    Lagerstroemia macrocarpa

    A tropical species of Crepe Myrtle, this tree is delightfully oversized with very large flowers and leaves. The flowers are magenta or purple when they first open then fade to a pale pink after a couple days. It's common name refers to the crepe-like texture of the flower.

  • Queen’s Wreath
    Kapnick Caribbean Garden

    Petrea volubilis

    Queen's Wreath, also referred to as Sandpaper Vine for its rough evergreen leaves, is a highlight of the Kapnick Caribbean Garden. Often mistaken for Wisteria, the genus name Petrea is for Lord Robert Petre, an 18th century exotic botany enthusiast. Volubilis refers to the twining of the branches that enable the vine to climb so profusely.

  • ‘Moragne 78’
    Plumeria Hills

    Plumeria rubra 'Moragne 78'

    Did you know that Naples Botanical Garden hosts the National Plumeria Collection? And that we hosted the International Plumeria Conference May 19 - 22?

    Access to the Plumeria Hills is extremely restricted due to ongoing construction in the Scott Florida Garden, however plumeria are in bloom throughout the Garden, notably the Kapnick Caribbean and Lea Asian Gardens.

  • Yellow Poinciana
    Kapnick Brazilian Garden

    Delonix regia var flavida

    If you're in the area, you might have noticed that the royal poinciana trees (Delonix regia) have begun to bloom. For those of us who live here, the fiery red flowers are a signal that tourist season is over and summer is on its way! Yellow poinciana (Delonix regia var flavida) is a less common variety that blooms along with the royals. You can see it flowering right now between the Kapnick Brazilian Garden and Kapnick Caribbean Garden. Want more of What's In Bloom? Follow us on Facebook where we feature Flower Friday!
