  Looking for recommendations of places to visit in Miami
From: <rozgold at pacbell.net> on 2017.01.03 at 20:14:41(23727)

I'm going to be in Miami for just a few days the third week in January. I'm definitely going to spend time at the Fairchild Tropical Garden, but I was wondering whether folks had recommendations of other places I should visit to see aroids. I'm from California, and I particularly like aglaonema hybrids. Are there any nurseries or other places that have a good selection available for purchase? There's just a few hybrids that we ever see out in California, and Florida growers seem to have a fair greater variety. I'm also interested in just visiting places with interesting gardens.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Roz,

For general information to you and others, sadly Dr. Frank Brown passed away some years a and I don't know who is maintaining his collection. It might be his long-time associate Clay Millare, I believe he's still in the Valkaria, Fla area running a retail nursery. You might check the IAS membership roles to find him, he might be listed under Cleofar Millare.

I can recommend two or three nurseries in the Miami area that have aroids, but I don't have time right now to get names and addresses for you.
I'll post that information as soon as possible, next day or two at most.

I have a large collection of aglaonemas so let me know if you're interested in my list. I have a few species plus some of the colorful Thai rotundum hybrids, as well as a lot of vintage and newer non-rotundum hybrids. My main interest are species and vintage hybrids from the 60s and early 70s.

Back to you later,
Russ, central Florida
