After Hours Buzz: Shape

Chat with a Garden scientist over cocktails about cool research on pollinators as part of the Garden-wide program Bees & Beyond Each evening includes a short talk with the scientist, assorted artisan cheese and fruit, mediterranean style vegetables and dips, sweets, and drinks.

Why are some flowers tubular and others open like a shallow cup? Do certain flower shapes attract certain kinds of pollinators? Does flower shape affect other aspects of the flower, like its scent or color? Come and see a sample of the different and beautiful flower shapes and learn about why there is such a huge variety of flower shapes in the plant world.
