Dear Aroiders,
When I can see the beautiful Philodendron grazielae , I think of Graziela and the stay in ours hearts.
Best regards.

> the famous weekend parties at the estate of Roberto Burle Marx, the reknown
> landscape artist and painter who had developed the largest aroid collection
> in South America.  Graziela was at that time a young 74 years old and had
> continued working after her mandatory retirement.  I will get together with
> some of the Brazilians who knew her well and prepare a full obituary to
> follow in the IAS Newsletter or in Aroideana but I just wanted those of you
> who might have known her or her work to be aware that we have lost her.
