Every day, gardens in town are splashed by the liveliest of colors. Evaristo, Efrain, Erick, Roberto and the rest of the gardening team love sharing their endless knowledge about all these tropical beauties. Many of these blooms can be found in markets, flower shops and plant nurseries near and far.
