HARLINGEN - The Harlingen Council of Garden Clubs will present its 48th Flower Show March 25 and 26. It will be held at the Cultural Arts Center, next door to the Harlingen Public Library.

The theme this year is Leafing Thru Literature, which includes talks with local experts on both days. Jennifer Wilson of Wild August Nursery & Flower Farm in Harlingen will speak at 2 p.m. Saturday on Growing Cut Flowers in the Rio Grande Valley. At 2 p.m. Sunday, Mike Heep of Heep’s Native Plant Nursery in Harlingen will speak on Citrus Varieties: Their Origins & Growing Them.

There will be a competition in 17 horticultural classes, including container grown plants, shrubs, hibiscus and other indoor and outdoor specimens both native and non-native to the Rio Grande Valley. 

Floral designs, arts and crafts and educational exhibits created by members of the Harnito and Town and Country garden clubs will be on display.

Show hours are 1 to 4:30 p.m. both days. Admission and lectures are free and open to the public. Lecture space is limited, so the event is on first-come, first-served basis.
