What’s in Bloom?

  • 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

  • Shower of Orchids
    Lea Asian Garden

    Congea tomentosa

    Shower of Orchids, also known as Wooly congea is blooming in the Lea Asian Garden, on the west side of the ruins. A native of southeast Asia, wooly congea features tiny inconspicuous flowers surrounded by velvety bracts. Over the course of several weeks, the bracts will change colors through pink, lavender, and, finally, gray. Shower of Orchids is in the mint family (Lamiaceae)

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!
