Pretty Pretty Pictures! Our new garden of Aromi Hybrid Native azaleas will be planted in the Fall. Maarten van der Geissen will be giving a preview of the collection and talk about why it is so special to Mobile. Dr Aromi, an ardent azalea hybridizer for over 30 years, left a fine heritage of over 100 named native azaleas, and Maarten, owner of van der Geissen Nursery in Semmes has been working with many of his seedlings since 2004. This will be a fascinating insight into the history of the Aromi Hybrids with the promise of what is to come in our new garden.
