Denver Botanic Gardens - Morrison Center
6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Sex in Your Garden
Intimate Affairs Between Plants and Pollinators
By Angela Overy

The basic science of flower pollination by bees, hummingbirds and some unexpected vectors is shown with beautiful photography and a humorous touch. Discover why flowers evolved with different colors and shapes, and why they bloom at various times of the day or season.

Angela Overy is an award winning author and artist who lectures on flower pollination all over the country. Her popular presentations demonstrate a whole new way of looking flowers.

Café Botanique is a part of the Botanical Art and Illustration Program. The 30-40 minute talk starts at 6:30 p.m. and is followed by a discussion. Café Botanique meets every first and third Thursday of the month, each time with a different topic relating to the Denver Botanic Gardens exhibits and Botanical Illustration classes.
There is no admission fee and pre-registration is not required.

Refreshments will be served.
