41st Annual Aroid Show and Sale
Saturday, September 15 @ 9:30am - 4:30pm
The Aroid Show and Sale at Fairchild Garden from 9:30am to 4:30pm is considered one of the most beautiful shows of the year. Visitors are treated to an incredible display of rare and unusual plants grown by the society’s members and by vendors who come from around the world and offer something for everyone.
The Araceae are a family of monocotyledonous flowering plants in which flowers are borne on a type of inflorescence called a spadix. The spadix is usually accompanied by, and sometimes partially enclosed in, a spathe or leaf-like bract. Also known as the arum family, members are colloquially known as aroids.
See this beautiful show and purchase something special for your own garden from many vendors and members. Society members will be available to share their knowledge and experience with you as you enjoy the show and purchase new plants.
Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is located at 10901 Old Cutler Road. Call 305-667-1651. http://www.fairchildgarden.org
