Florida Native Plant
Philippine violet is an easy to grow perennial shrub that can get 3-4 feet tall. It requires some sun to flower profusely and occasional pruning to promote bushy growth. The tubular lilac-blue flowers open in terminal clusters in November and continue through mid-December. There is also a variety with white flowers. It freely produces seeds that sprout seedlings. It can also be propagated from cuttings planted in fall directly in the ground. If it is affected by frost it can be cut to the ground and will re-sprout in the spring.

Welcome to Our Website!
Theme for Year 2013-2014
Our Mission Statement
The purpose of The Garden Club at Palm Coast, Inc. is: “To aid in the protection and conservation of plants, birds, trees, air, and water; to stimulate a knowledge and love of horticulture and floral design; to educate members to participate in environmental affairs and to encourage civic pride.”
"Festival of Trees"
The Club has once again placed a decorated Christmas tree in the Flagler County Public Library’s, “Festival of Trees”. The Arrangers’ Guild, under the chairmanship of Ann Bonforte, completed the task for the Garden Club.
The theme of this year’s tree is “The Hibiscus”. The hibiscus flowers were contrived from the spathes of the split-leaf philodendron, as was the angel resting atop the tree. Each flower was hand-crafted by Anne Bonforte and Edwina Tabit. They did an outstanding job.
The tree is on display at the library November19th through January 3rd.
