Tuesday, June 7“The Adventure of Bringing Heliconias into Cultivation” by Carla Black Carla has lived in western Panama for over 20 years. Her interest in plants and gardening developed from her lifelong love of the outdoors. Her specialty is the native heliconias of Panama and Costa Rica. With over 200 heliconia species and varieties in her garden Carla has the largest collection of Heliconia species in the world. In her collection there are several undescribed species she has collected. She opens her three hectare garden to the public once a year, when she offers heliconia plants for sale. Currently she serves as president of the Heliconia Society International. We'll take a vigorous journey through remarkable habitats in the neotropics, and rest and relax in Carla's garden, too. http://www.heliconiagarden.com and www.volcanbaru.com
