CFPACS - 10/20/2019 - Part III - Private Garden in SW FL

The final stop for our Fall Meeting was a private garden in SW FL.  Ownership was generous with free plants and seeds galore.  There was a formal tour of the garden and we were allowed to freely explore the area, picking up seeds, seedlings and cuttings along the way.  Among the giveaways were Foxy Lady seedlings, variegated versions of old favorites like Rhapidophyllum hystrix, cuttings from rare cacti and succulents.  The garden also featured a Brahea armata; a very tough grow in SW FL.  With stone walking paths, dense foliage, plenty of rare palms and some desert flora mixed in, the garden really did have a rain forest feel.  In this case, I think the garden speaks for itself.
