Corks and Caladiums Celebrate Nehrling Gardens

Do you love caladiums? Do you love wine? Then May 9th is the special day for a sunset stroll on the historic Nehrling Gardens for Corks and Caladiums.  This special event will feature live music, silent auction, and Mother's Day gifts.

This is just the event to attend if you've never been to the Nehrling Gardens. Henry Nehrling is known as the "patron saint of Florida gardens" having researched and introduced over 3,000 unknown and rare plant and tree species to Florida as well as Florida's native plants to the nation.
The Nehrling Gardens have had such historical celebrities as Theodore Roosevelt, Thomas Edison, and famed horticulturists David Fairchild, creator of the Fairchild Botanical Gardens, and Liberty Hyde Bailey visit Dr. Nehrling to see his incredible collection of tropical plants.

Caladiums are one of my favorite plants for Florida shade. I can't wait to see all the different cultivars. Join me on May 9th, 5:30pm to 8:30pm in  Gotha. Tickets are $50 per person. You must be 21 to attend.
