Greg Grant has built quite a loyal following of folks from the Arbor Gate, so we wanted to pass this information along:

Naked Ladies and Oxbloods
SFA Gardens Arcadian Fall Bulb Bus Tour

Join us September 14, 2013, as we visit Greg Grant’s Emanis House dogtrot in Shelby County’s rural community of Arcadia. Depending on the weather, we may see red oxblood lilies (Rhodophiala), several different colors of spider lilies (Lycoris), or assorted rain lilies (Cooperia, Zephyranthes, and Habranthus). Unfortunately, their display depends on the first fall rains, so we can’t guarantee a grand naturalized bulb display. We can guarantee a look at Greg’s old family home with an open breezeway running through it, along with his small cottage garden, chickens, and bluebird houses. Dress comfortably for potentially hot weather. The bus tour will be from 9 am until 12 pm noon. All participants will meet at the SFA Ag building at 9 am. $25 for Friends of SFA Gardens members, $30 for non-members. For more information and reservations, contact Elyce Rodwald at 936-468-1832 or [email protected]. Other SFA Gardens events and information can be found at
