What’s in Bloom?

  • Brownea hybrida
    Kathryn's Garden

    Brownea hybrida

    Brownea is from the Fabaceae family, like the Jade Vine! This family includes plants commonly found in your grocery store such as peas and beans (but please don't eat the Brownea). This tree is native to the tropical rainforests of South America; and is in good company in Kathryn's Garden, which was inspired by the paintings of Henri Rousseau (1844-1910).

  • 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.

  • Rooster’s Crest
    Kapnick Brazilian Garden

    Camptosema grandiflora

    Rooster's crest is blooming near the Burle Marx mural in the Kapnick Brazilian Garden. This Brazilian native is sometimes confused with red jade vine (Mucuna bennettii), which it does closely resemble; in fact, rooster's crest is also sometimes known as miniature red jade vine. Both plants are high-climbing members of the pea family (Fabaceae), although M. bennettii has more tropical origins and is not as cold-hardy as the plant pictured here. Rooster's crest is attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds and typically blooms through early winter.

  • Flame of the Forest
    North Grove

    Butea monosperma

    Flame of the forest is just starting to bloom in the North Grove. Until the flowers start to open, it is easy to overlook this tree as its flower buds are nearly black and it sheds its leaves before blooming. Once it does start flowering, though, it really is the "flame of the forest" and difficult to miss! Look for this large tree as you head west from the Water Garden
