Final Summer Flower Show Presents Very Vibrant Violets
Summer is ending, but the ABQ BioPark and Albuquerque African Violet Club still have blooms to enjoy this weekend at African Violets to Love. Come to the Botanic Garden's flower show on August 25 and 26 to wrap up the summer season. African Violets to Love is open from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. in the Heritage Farmhouse.
African violets are some of the most satisfying flowering houseplants and can bloom almost continuously. For more than a century, collectors have been breeding these plants, characterized by dark, hairy leaves and violet-like flowers found in soothing blue, white and purple hues.
"The variety of violets featured this weekend will captivate guests with a rainbow of colors from light pink to almost black," said Catherine Hubbard, Botanic Garden Manager. "Any romantic or flower enthusiast can easily become enamored with these exotic plants."
African Violets to Love includes displays and presentations of flowers grown by the Albuquerque African Violet Club. Club members share techniques for growing, watering, repotting and propagating these beautiful blooms. In addition to demonstrations, guests can purchase standard and mini African violets in the Heritage Farmhouse.
Join the club and fall in love with African violets at the Botanic Garden this weekend. Admire the beauty and discover the secrets of these enchanting flowers. African Violets to Love is included with regular admission.
