Central Coast Greenhouse Growers Association Open House

Luckily, my friend and I were able to attend the Central Coast Greenhouse Growers Association (CCGGA) Open House Scholarship Fundraiser. They do the fundraiser for scholarships once per year and the general public gets to see and buy their beautiful flowers.  We only had time for the Holland America Flowers and Corey Nursery but what a reward to see such beautiful flowers.  Plants were in full bloom of every color almost.  A beautiful sight for eyes and smells for the nose too.

First and foremost,  we headed to Holland America where my friend found many bouquets for her friends who have recently retired including yours truly.  The gazing lilies smell so wonderful.  They are actually a little overwhelming for some folks which have allergies to their strong scent but I love them.

Anthurium

Anthurium and Bromeliad

I have grown anthuriums for several years but I prefer houseplants with more blooms.  I almost selected the orange star.

Beautiful Orange

Bonsai and orange star plant which is a native to South America.

I settled on an azalea because of the bright colors and the clusters of beautiful pink blooms.  You can see why in the picture below.

Corn Plant

I call it just a “Corn Plant” but I think gardeners call it ” Mass Cane Floor Plant”.

 

Even More Color

We have color everywhere here. Bromeliads of several colors and type.
