tropical plant  events that reflect the ever-changing plant world in South Florida

Extravaganza Event

The keynote event of the nursery, is the large scale, open house sale known as the Extravaganza. The Extravaganza is a highly-anticipated plant sale that takes place twice a year, in both spring and fall, and runs for over two weekends. During the ‘Ganza, the entire nursery is transformed into an epic plant event, with growing areas, shade houses and roadways converted into a festival-like atmosphere for the tropical plant enthusiast.

Plants fromall over the twenty acres are collected, moved and positioned in a sales area near the center of the nursery. The Extravaganza has run for an impressive eighteen (18) years as of 2016 and has become a social norm for South Florida; with a mailing list of several thousands and an incredible following among the community, people can’t hardly wait for the next one.

The Biennial

The business is also reflected throughout the world via various traveling trips, expeditions and expositions to countries far and wide. The International Palm Society (IPS) organizes and conducts a palm-related symposium every two years, called the Biennial, and features attendees from all over the world, including the nursery.

During the 2014 Biennial in South Florida, the nursery itself was selected as one of the stops during the event. For many years, the nursery has been an avid attendee in the local tropical plant exposition, TPIE, conducted by its parent organization FNGLA.

Beyond the business itself, the nursery has become a social gathering spot for friends, family members and plant enthusiasts during events and activities.
