Bloomin' Zoo Garden fest hands out landscaping ideas

Posted: Updated:

Over 1,000 people went to Mesker Park Zoo this weekend for the annual Bloomin' Zoo Garden festival. 

Organizers said the rain didn't hurt attendance.

The sale featured about four dozen types of plants including tropical patio plants and native wildflowers.

14 News was told that many of those plants were grown at the zoo. Organizers said the sale is a good way to expose people to new types of plants and flowers.

"Everybody likes to do their own landscape, so we like to give them good options here for in our climate. We're growing a lot more heat-tolerant plants and it's great to come out to the zoo and get ideas for your own landscape," said Paul Bouseman, the Botanical Curator at Mesker Park Zoo. 

This marks the 12th year for the event.
