Corpse Flower donations transform nursery

Corpse Flower donations transform nursery

Date posted: 27 June 2016

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.
