What’s in Bloom?

  • Jade Vine
    Kapnick Caribbean Garden

    Strongylodon macrobotrys

    Nestled in the Queen's Wreath, this native of the Philippines was originally planted in 2009, but did not bloom until 2014 due to cold winters. Fun facts: in the wild, bats are one of the Jade Vine's main pollinators, and this showstopper is in the pea and bean family, Fabaceae.

  • 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

  • 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)

  • 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.
