This exhibition of original watercolor and colored pencil artworks illustrates the remarkable variety and variability of pollinators for native Florida plants. To draw attention to these complex natural relationships, members of Tropical Botanic Artists have illustrated birds, butterflies, moths, bees, wasps--and even aquatic zooplankton--with plants they are known to pollinate. The critical role played by pollinators is well known to commercial agricultural producers and home gardeners alike. In South Florida’s remaining wild, uncultivated spots – pine rocklands, hardwood hammocks, watery glades and coastal mangroves – the connection between plants and their pollinators is crucial. These co-dependent relationships, though not always obvious, can be extremely strong. Without one, the other will not survive.
