"Aroids are plants which everybody knows but relatively few people recognize." The Araceae (Aroids) are known more for their impressive foliage than the unconventional beauty of their flowers. You've probably seen them in homes, offices, in landscapes and climbing up trees. This incredibly diverse family of flowering plants includes philodendrons, calla lilies, Swiss cheese plant, jack-in-the-pulpit, elephant ears, and much more.
Join in the excitement at the 38th Annual Show and Sale as the International Aroid Society presents some of the most fascinating and widely used ornamental plants in the world. The plant sale will feature local and international vendors, and the opportunity to interact with researchers, growers and hobbyists alike. On Saturday there will be lectures, a rare plant auction, and a society members banquet (seating is limited).
