Thank you to MBG's generous supporters!

The Mead Botanical Garden Trustees give special thanks to the following for their recent plant donations:

Cool-colored Caladiums are popping up everywhere!

The tropical plants show their color during the summer and fall months from June to October.  In 2012, volunteers took to their knees and planted hundreds upon hundreds of bulbs donated to the garden by caladium grower Bates Sons and Daughters of Lake Placid, Florida. In business for over 65 years, Bates' caladiums are known throughout the horticultural industry for their quality, size, and vigor. Their website is a wealth of information. Visit www.caladiumsonline.com.

Discover new trails to the Clay Pit Ponds

If you have trekked through Mead Garden lately, you probably noticed all the newly planted azaleas northeast of the Legacy Garden Greenhouse. What you may not have seen is a small opening amidst the azaleas. Here you’ll find the hidden entrance to a new trail leading down the slope to the historic Clay Pit Ponds.

A Cereus Celebration, Seriously!

Thanks to all who came out to see (and raise a glass to) the night-blooming cereus. It put on a spectacular show on Monday, June 16, and by Tuesday morning, the buds had all closed up and dropped to the ground. Now, this unassuming cactus will all but disappear into the background until one midsummer's night next year when it will once again come alive in a striking display of blooms.  

Tonight's the night! The Cereus is about to bloom!

Wine at 9... til 10:30. Come celebrate with us and raise a toast to this beautiful flowering cactus!

All indications are tonight's the night.
The rain won't stop this spectacular sight! 
If you can't make it by the Garden tonight,
Try and stop by before dawn's early light!

So, if you're "serious" about seeing the "cereus," come on out to Mead Garden tonight!
