Description

New and Underutilized Plants for Central Florida

Thursday, October 12, 6:30 -8:30 PM

Instructor: Robert Bowden

Many recently introduced plants are worthy of being utilized by homeowners in Florida. Determining a new plant’s suitability in the sunshine state’s harsh climate is a function performed by many of its public and private botanical gardens. Utilizing their extensive network of plant explorers, breeders, horticulturists and growers, botanical gardens traditionally acquire plants from around the world and by means of comprehensive testing, determine their ability to flourish in Florida. Leu Gardens’ Executive Director Robert Bowden will provide an update on the many extraordinary new plants that have been tested and later released to the marketplace in the last three years. USDA growing zones, sunlight and water requirements, flowering potential and availability will all be explored.

Robert Bowden is the Director of Leu Gardens and author of Florida Top Ten Garden Guide and Florida Fruit and Vegetable Gardening: Plant, Grow, and Harvest the Best Edibles by Cool Springs Press.
