Gardening 101: Lotus or Water Lily?

Saturday August 6

10:00 AM  –  11:00 AM

Nymphaeaceae (Waterlily family) vs Nelumbonaceae (Lotus family)

Do they grow differently? How do you grow them? Where could you find them in nature? Which one is better?

In this class, Horticulturalist Matt Hockaday will give an overview of these beautiful and easy to grow plants; briefly covering scientific classification/anatomy and focusing on horticultural care and species/varieties. Then, attendees are invited to view the many lotus and water lilies grown at Powell Gardens at the Lotus Pond on the Family Discovery Loop or the Marlese Lowe Gourley Island Garden. 

Your ticket price includes admission to Festival of Butterflies, a $12 value. No refunds.
