Auriculas Take the Stage

Posted in Inside our Collections on March 30, 2020, by Matt Newman

Please welcome the auriculas to the stage!

While you’d normally find these floral faces blooming within the “Auricula Theater” we set up in the Perennial Garden each spring—a traditional display for these plants first popularized in England—with the Garden currently closed to the public, they’re instead putting on their show for our essential staff in NYBG’s Alpine House. Their jewel-like blooms are always a welcome sight among the season’s many flowers.
