“McKee Botanical Garden will host its 14th Annual Waterlily Celebration on Saturday, June 16, 2018.  Come enjoy the tranquility and beauty of the Garden during this special time of year.  Waterlilies have been McKee’s most striking plant collection from its onset in the 1930s.  McKee’s current collection consists of over 80 species of waterlilies and over 200 potted and 90 free-range plants. These majestic plants bring color in flowers and leaves, and fragrance and texture to the ponds and waterways.”

The gardens are opening early for the festival enabling us to make images during the best light of the morning. Bring a diffuser to enable shooting as the sun climbs higher. Other gear recommendations: macro lens, telephoto lens, extension tubes, small reflector, tripod

Bring your Harry P Leu Botanical Gardens (Orlando) membership card (or go purchase one several weeks in advance to allow time to receive your card by mail) to enter McKee Gardens at no charge as they are an AHS reciprocal garden. Adults – $10, Seniors – $9
