South Florida’s planting season is quickly approaching. I like to go with a theme. Maybe you want to plant a native garden or a butterfly garden. Or maybe you want to try something different.

Bromeliad Show and Sale

Saturday, March 1, 2014

The 36th annual show and sale of the Bromeliad Society of South Florida is exhibiting some remarkable plants, from wispy, silver tillandsias to the armed Neoregelia “Hanibal Lector;’ some bear brilliantly colored inflorescences, others have simply elegant shapes and not a flower in sight, such as Quesnelia marmorata ‘Tim Plowman.’  “What big teeth you have”, said Little Red Riding Hood when she saw Hohenbergia edmundoi with its fierce armor and spines. Where there is color, it is seldom demure: Neoregelia ‘Donna’ has a startlingly bright fuchsia center; Aechmea tessmanii waves its yellow and red inflorescence like a beacon in the night.

Beggar’s needle: an underappreciated Florida wildflower

Monday, March 10, 2014

You probably rip it out of your yard by the handful, but the humble beggar’s needle, Bidens alba, is an important native Florida wildflower, supporting our pollinators and native animals. Consider the attributes of this common “weed” before you curse it from your garden.

The Antidesma (Antidesma bunius)

Sunday, March 16, 2014

Florida is far from exhausting its list of possible fruit for testing and the antidesma now takes center stage. Dr. David Fairchild, namesake of Tropical Botanic Garden,  first brought the antidesma to Florida in 1900s from one of his expeditions to the Philippines.

Monsters of the Backyard

Sunday, March 23, 2014

My father taught me to appreciate the natural world of our home garden. The day-to-day of my young life was tied to the cycle of the plants, the animals and yes, even the insects. There was always a lesson to be learned, an eco-adventure to be observed, played with, or tackled head-on.  I grew up, but did not out-grow this adventurous ...
