Exhibition of Rare and Unusual plants
Eight thousand species of rare and unusual plants of the temperate, tropical and mediterranean belt will be displayed at the 4th edition of Ipomea, the botanic event to be held at the hydro-thermal botanic park of Negombo, San Montano d’Ischia.
Forty exhibitors are taking part, from 15 Italian regions, the US and Santo Domingo. The event will include seminars and shows on the gardens of Lake Maggiore; palm trees and rare species of the Antonio de Luca farms of Miami (Usa); Ravino di Forio gardens; a bibliography of the international bookshop Oolp-Out of the London press of Turin; an event on the Bread Tree. “Ipomea – say the organisers – is a commercial event, but not a marketing one. It wants to affir the culture and sense of belonging to a place through the world of plants and natural essences”.
