Visitors’ generous donations to the Botanic Gardens of South Australia’s two Corpse Flower blooming events have helped transform the Mount Lofty Botanic Garden Nursery.
Last summer two Titan Arums – known as Corpse Flowers – bloomed at the Mount Lofty and Adelaide Botanic Gardens, drawing more than 16,000 visitors and worldwide media attention, and raising about $10,000 in donations.
The donations have helped the Mount Lofty Botanic Garden Nursey support vital plant conservation through the purchase of new propagation lights and other nursery equipment.
A huge and heartfelt thank you to everyone who donated.
