The island nation of Madagascar was the scene of two separate, month-long expeditions to visit several palm habitats to document never-before-photographed species and explore areas untouched by civilization. Recently, we explored the palm-haven that is the state of Sarawak in Borneo. It is one of the most isolated and palm rich areas in the world, seldom visited by botanists and collectors alike.
The Rainforest Collection is not limited to palm species, and spans numerous tropical plant families, including; cycads, crotons, aroids, heliconias, gingers and their relatives, tropical flowering trees and exotic vines and much more. Through the nursery, the Rainforest Collection exhibits in areas around South Florida via plant sales; either independently such as the renown Extravaganza and our Key West Plant sale, or by way of events promoted by plant societies and garden clubs.
