Look for beautiful Florida native flowers soon at four botanical gardens, thanks to $3,000 grants awarded by the Foundation. The projects aim to increase the knowledge and visibility of wildflowers in La Florida, “place of flowers”:
- Harry P. Leu Gardens, Orlando, to supplement an existing native plant/wildflower demonstration planting.
- Bok Tower Gardens, Lake Wales, for wildflowers around the parking lot and picnic area and along a trail in the Preserve, the gardens’ restored native sandhill ecosystem.
- Pinellas County Extension, Largo, to create a wildflower demonstration garden adjacent to Florida natives garden.
- Central Florida Zoo, Sanford, for a new streamside wildflower garden.
