Second Tuesday of the month = Garden Free Day! It’s a stunning day to come savor spring as summer quickly approaches. The protea flowering in the South Africa collection; buckeye, clarkia, flannel bush, as well as lots of California pipevine swallowtail butterflies and caterpillars offer intrigue in the California Native Plant Garden; there are four different kinds of Agave and more blooming in the Succulent Garden; dogwoods are flowering along the axis lawn near the Camellia and Zellerbach Gardens, and that is just the start! Mediterranean, Chile, Australia and all other geographic and thematic plant collections are loaded with spring highlights you don’t want to miss—come travel the world in 55 acres! #sfbotanicalgarden #WILDflowers_sfbg
Join us next week for a DIY Kokedama workshop with instructor Baylor Chapman of @lilabdesign ! Kokedama is a traditional Japanese gardening technique dating back centuries. Simply translated 'Kokedama' means 'moss ball.' We'll be taking this art form and putting our own local twist on it—using plants from the Garden we'll be wrapping the bases with a clay-rich blend of soil and sculpting to create mossy spheres. Display these fun arrangements on tables or hang from string for your own little piece of serene nature. All materials will be provided. Sign up today! Link in profile
