What’s in Bloom?

  • 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!

  • Lotus
    Lea Asian Garden

    Nelumbo nucifera

    You can find lotus blooming now in the Lea Asian Garden. In addition to beautiful flowers, lotus also has really interesting leaves. If you look closely, you'll notice that water forms beads on the leaf's surface. Nanostructures on lotus leaves repel water: water dropped onto the leaf does not wet the surface and simply rolls off. As water moves across superhydrophobic surfaces like these leaves, it picks up and carries away dirt, dust, and debris, also. Engineers look to the "lotus effect" to design self-cleaning, superhydrophobic products, like textiles that remain dry when submerged in water and building materials that are better protected from the elements.

  • 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.

  • Dwarf Blue Orchid Tree
    Kapnick Caribbean Garden

    Bauhinia grandidieri

    You can find dwarf blue orchid tree blooming next to the Chattel House in the Kapnick Caribbean Garden right now. Dwarf blue orchid tree has tiny leaves and is a great choice for bonsai. Despite the name, this tree and other trees in its genus, like Hong Kong orchid (Bauhinia x blakeana), are in no way related to orchids and actually belong to the legume family, Fabaceae.
