Naples botanical garden sets opening record

The Naples Botanical Garden in Florida welcomed its 100,000th visitor, making for record attendance a year after re-opening to the public.

The visitor, Carol Banaszak, came with her husband Ed after she heard about the re-opening through one of the Garden's volunteers. The couple had no idea they'd be making such a momentous appearance, but are now enjoying a free family membership.

"It's too hard to pick just one," said Banaszak of the three new gardens that recently opened. The Marcia and L. Bates Lea Asian Garden, the Karen and Robert Scott Florida Garden and the Water Garden all represent flora from the same latitude around the world.

Banaszak and her husband are reportedly big fans of orchids and bromeliads, which are a popular native flower to the region. For your own Floridian flora, try pairing either of these exotic blooms with boughs of orange blossoms. According to, the orange blossom was designated as Florida's state flower in 1909 and is also native to southeast Asia, representing two of the three gardens.
