Notable Ornamentals In Ming’s Garden

This is a Clerodendrum species in the garden of former First Lady
Amelita “Ming” Ramos in Silang, Cavite. Its flowers has a special
scent reminiscent of the sampaguita. One plant aficionado bought
a lot of planting materials of this plant because according to him
it drives away termites from his garden. No scientific study to this
effect is known, however.

When you happen to go to Tagaytay City or some other place in Cavite, try stopping at Ming’s Garden in Silang, Cavite. This is a special project of former First Lady Amelita “Ming” Ramos who is a true-blue plant lover.

The place is big and there are lots of interesting flowering and foliage plants. There are many bromeliads with their intense color because of the cold climate in Silang. Prices are reasonable. A well-established New Guinea Creeper sells for P500. You don’t normally find this in other plant stores.
