When you think of Florida, images of blue water and swaying palms come to mind. Florida's tropical climate makes it one of the best places for growing palms. They come in a wide variety and make excellent landscape plants. Using examples found on The Ringling grounds, we'll look at some of the best trees for our area and how to plant and care for them.
Designed to give homeowners the know-how to create Florida-friendly landscapes, this series of programs uses the grounds and gardens of The Ringling as its outdoor classroom.
The program will include a talk and discussion in the Education Center followed by a walking tour tailored to the topic. Please wear comfortable clothes and walking shoes.
