Elaine Hogan, Clermont Garden Club member,  shared a Kohleria plant with Clermont City Hall for the month of March. It is in the Gesneriaceae family which also includes violets. It is a rapid, prolific grower and is a rhizome. Lots of light (no direct sun-South or West facing window) and soil to be kept moist but not overwatered.  Kohleria can grow very tall and may need staking up or it can be kept smaller by pruning the stems.   Ray Sanfratello accepts the plant for the city.
Clermont Garden Club shares a potted plant with Clermont City Hall each month to promote horticulture awareness, civic beautification,  and community outreach.
Clermont Garden Club members meet every third Wednesday of the month,  except scheduled field trips,  holiday luncheon, and end of the year luncheon,  at the clubhouse located at 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.
