What’s in Bloom?

  • 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.

  • Stoke’s Aster
    Scott Florida Garden

    Stokesia laevis

    Along the winding path of the newly reopened Karen and Robert Scott Florida Garden, you'll find Stoke's aster blooming. A native of the southeastern United States, Stoke's aster is named in honor of Scottish physician and botanist Jonathan Stokes (1755-1831), who collaborated with fellow botanist and digitalis pioneer William Withering on "An Account of the Foxglove and its Medical Uses" (1785), detailing his own experience using purple foxglove (Digitalis purpurea) to treat heart failure patients. Stokes and Withering also belonged to the Lunar Society of Birmingham, a philosophical society that included leading industrialists and scientists of the day like Erasmus Darwin, grandfather of Charles, and Joseph Priestley, who is credited with isolating oxygen. The Lunar Society met monthly around the time of the full moon (hence the name) so that roads were better lit for attendees who had to travel at night.

  • Red Silk Cotton Tree
    South Grove

    Bombax ceiba

    In the Grove between the Lea Asian Garden and Scott Florida Garden, you might notice the grass dotted with large red flowers. Look up and you'll see the brightly-colored canopy of the red silk cotton tree. Its large flowers are attractive to insects, hummingbirds, and other birds. The common name refers to the white cottony fibers that surround seeds in its woody capsule-like fruit. When the fruit ripens, the capsules burst open and the silky fibers carry the seeds on the wind.

  • 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!
