Mayo Clinic Flower of Hope launches

The Mayo Clinic celebrates its 150th anniversary this year and to express the spirit of hope and healing through the beauty of nature, it is featuring the Mayo Clinic Flower of Hope at its locations, a bright yellow hybrid Coreopsis “Electric Avenue” by ItSaul Plants in Alpharetta, GA, according to a news release.

“To recognize the Mayo Clinic Sesquicentennial in 2014, we looked for a flower that would grow at each Mayo site — Minnesota, Arizona and Florida, as well as the Mayo Clinic Health System campuses in Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and Georgia,” said a release on the company’s website. “A perennial in warmer climates and an annual in cooler areas, the Mayo Clinic Flower of Hope will bloom from late spring through fall, reaching 18-24 inches tall, with a spread of 18 inches.”

The Mayo Clinic holds to the philosophy that the enjoyment of nature can play a key role in the healing process and landscaping is an important feature at each Mayo Clinic location.
