Clermont Garden Club member, Arlene Rand, (pictured on the right with Cooper Librarian Amy Hand), is sharing her Lucky Bamboo with library patrons this month. Lucky bamboo (Dracaena sanderiana), also known as curly bamboo, is a tropical plant valued for its ease of care, easily manipulated growth and pleasing appearance. The plant’s common name derives from its supposed ability to bring good fortune to its owner and its resemblance to real bamboo.  Native to Asia and Africa, lucky bamboo requires a warm, humid climate to thrive, so gardeners typically grow the plant indoors. 
Each month a Clermont Garden Club member shares a plant with the library to promote interest in horticulture and increase awareness of our organization.
Clermont Garden Club members meet every third Wednesday of the month (September-May).  The Annual End of the Year Luncheon is held in May.  All meetings are held at the clubhouse,  849 West Avenue,  Clermont,  Florida 34711.  Meetings begin at 10:00 A.M.  New members and guests are warmly welcome.
Clermont Garden Club is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
Amy and Arlene
