Although they live in a vast desert, many Southern Metro gardeners keep ponds in their backyard, water lilies, cannabis and more – and perhaps a few colorful fish.
So when the Colorado Water Garden Association sells, those gardeners find an Addis Ababa plant or a unique shape or colorful foliage.
CWGS will be open to the public on Sunday, June 5 at Hudson Gardens (near the business office) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
At 6115 S. Santa Fe Drive, Littleton parking is free and one can enter the yard from the driveway and head north to the mall. Admission is free and the gardens are open until noon.
According to CWGS promoter Jim Arnell, one of the most knowledgeable staff, there are tropical water lilies, hardy water lilies, lotus, cannabis, taro, water iris and many other marine plants. And he will be ready to talk about different plants and how to care for them.
He said there will be fertilizer tablets for sale.
