Mark Weathington, Director

  • Wednesday, October 14, 2020 – 3:00 pm4:00 pm

The aroid family, Araceae, contains some of our favorite herbaceous perennials including elephant ears, Jack-in-the-pulpits and cobra-lilies, voodoo lilies and devil's tongues, arums, calla lilies, caladiums, and skunk cabbage. The family includes over 100 genera and nearly 4,000 species. The inflorescence of aroids are comprised of a spadix, which is usually surrounded by a large sheathing bract called a spathe. Join Mark on Wednesday to learn more about some of his favorite ornamental aroids.
