Carla Black and Angel Rodriguez First Annual Plant Sale in Panama

If you are lucky enough to be in Panama you can go to this. If not save your pennies so you can book a ticket for next year!! Carla is not only on the Board of Directors at HSI but a passionate heliconia conservationist. She has a large selection of super rare and endangered heliconias. Ann

Dear Gardeners,

You are invited to our first Annual Plant Sale and Garden Open House in Volcán!

Saturday and Sunday August 15th and 16th, from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm, we will be open for business and for garden visitors at our home, Finca Las Chichicas.

There will be 45 different kinds of heliconias for sale, as well as other plants that are not often seen in local nurseries.

We have been collecting heliconias from throughout Central and South America for ten years, and the garden holds well over 100 different species and varieties. I’ve selected the strongest, prettiest plants for the sale. They’re guaranteed to grow!

Bill Fitz will bring his fabulous bromeliads from Boquete, and Miriam Lezcano from Sortová will offer a wide selection of potted plants.

We have been working hard on our landscaping, and things are looking good. There are ponds with giant Victoria water lilies, a wet wall filled with epiphytic plants, open vistas, and trails through the woods. You’ll have a great time!

We are neighbors of Sitio Barriles on the road to Caizan; use the public gravel drive just past that tourist attraction, please leave your car in the corner lot (people with limited mobility will be allowed to drive to the garden), and walk 200 meters to our private entry. Wear sturdy shoes, and if you come in the afternoon, bring your umbrella!

See for photos of the heliconias for sale and their prices, and for complete driving instructions from the center of Volcán.

We look forward to your visit!
