There are new specimens in the Pember's Botanical Oddities exhibit! Come see the largest seed in the plant kingdom - the Coco-de-mer. It's so heavy, it cannot float although rotted-out seeds have be found floating in the Indian Ocean with other drift seeds. This palm lives up to 800 years old and grows 130 feet tall.
The Seaheart is a drift seed also known as the Lucky Seed.
We have Pember's Peppertree berries collected in California in 1909, an English Walnut collected also in California in 1907 and a Levant Cotton seed from 1916.
Each specimen on exhibit has an information sheet regarding it's species.
These specimens will be on exhibit through December 18th.
