Our popular Central Florida resort is known for its 4.5 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, so we've created The Garden Club, a botanical experience you won't find anywhere else. Come share your enthusiasm for nature as you explore 500,000 plants and flowers growing in a majestic temperature-controlled atrium.
As the temperatures rise outside, the bright colors begin to bloom indoors at Gaylord Palms! Now through the middle of June, you’ll find Kalanchoe blossfeldiana, a colorful, succulent plant, in season at Gaylord Palms. Kalanchoes, as they’re more commonly known, are native to the island of Madagascar and are a member of the Crassulaceae family – a group of flowering plants who store water in their leaves.
Kalanchoes are a popular choice for consumers because of their long lasting flowers, attractive foliage and easy maintenance! Be sure to plant the flowers in a fertile potting soil mixture and allow for good drainage. Kalanchoes bloom best with maximum exposure to the sun, but also do well in the shade.
Our talented team of horticulturists invites you to tour the celebrated gardens of Gaylord Palms. To make an appointment, contact our green-thumbed experts at
See our spectacular herb garden located just outside of Villa de Flora, our Mediterranean-style buffet restaurant. You'll see 3 herb-growing methods you can use at home:
Container Gardening – Growing plants in containers allows you to bring outdoor herbs into your kitchen; basil, mint, sage, thyme and rosemary are ideal.
Raised-Bed Gardening – Raise the soil at least 6 inches off of the ground, contained within a frame. The soil warms more quickly when elevated, extending the growing season for colder climates. Gardeners can also compensate for poor soil quality and grow a greater variety of plants.
Using herbs as ornamentals – Many herbs offer decorative and medicinal benefits in addition to culinary uses: Aloe vera, for example, contains a gel that can relieve burns and help skin tissue heal. Enjoy a new selection of ornamental herbs each season.
