Aroids make an international stir

Well done, Myles Challis (head of horticulture at The Living Rainforest)!

The current issue of Aroideana, the journal of the International Aroid Society, includes two articles on the stunning aroid collection at The Living Rainforest. One article is by Myles, in which he describes the development of the collection, and the other is by Dr Derek Burch, the journal’s editor, who worked here a few summers back. (Hi Derek!)

There is no-one more passionate about aroids (Araceae) than Myles, and the quality of the collection here shows what can be accomplished with years of care and dedication.

Thank you Myles. We’re very proud of what you have accomplished.
