Curated selection of distinctive art from the popular Philadelphia artist MF Cadamone is available for purchase at the Florida Fantastica! exhibit now on display in Selby Gardens Museum of Botany and the Arts. Cardamone's mixed media work evokes wonder and mystery as she tells the life story of each botanical specimen. http://www.selby.org/events/florida-fantastica-mf-cardamone

What’s blooming at the Gardens today? Clerodendrum schmidtii or Chains of Glory. Stop by to view the delicate, white flowers that resemble falling snow. But hurry, this bloom won’t last long! http://www.selby.org/research/blog/clerodendrum-schmidtii-verbenaceae

Herald-Tribune Media Group stopped by last night to take some photos of the CBS Evening News broadcast. Hopefully everyone was able to tune in! Did you hear news anchor Scott Pelley give a shout out to Selby Gardens?! We recorded the broadcast, and will post clips on our website and social media soon.

Selby Gardens’ visitors have always admired our towering bamboo garden. Bamboo thrives in Florida’s subtropical climate and offers many benefits to homes such as shade, privacy and windbreak. Watch this short video featuring Mike McLaughin, Selby Gardens Director of Horticulture, and learn how you can grow your very own bamboo garden. (Fun fact: Despite its tall appearance, bamboo is not a tree. It’s actually a member of the grass family, and one of the fastest growing plants in the world!) http://vimeo.com/6823762
