International researchers, breeders, growers and hobbyists descend on Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden’s International Aroid Society Annual Show & Sale for a fab opportunity to snap up some unique specimens with bold, striking foliage and interesting, even bizarre, flowers. The more than a dozen award-winning vendors come from near and far and often feature plants available from botanical gardens and private growers that can be found nowhere else on the planet. Guest lectures touch upon topics of plant exploration, growing uncommon genera, and much more. Best of all, plant lovers will get to see huge specimen show plants up close and interact with others who share their love for these natural wonders; Sept. 11-12; FairchildGarden.org.
