About this Indoor Garden
Cascading water, clear pools, and richly textured plants create a visually exciting display that takes advantage of the vertical rock channels of the greenhouse. Follow the curved path and discover colorful bromeliads and philodendrons.
Antirrhinum majus ′Potomac Plumblossom′ (Potomac Group)
One of many plant varieties being prepared for more formal display, seen between the North Passage and the Cascade Garden.
Originally an extension of the Fern Passage, this area later became the Desert House, whose plants were eventually incorporated into the Silver Garden. In 1992, famed Brazilian landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx used hundreds of plants, 35 tons of rock and 3,000 feet of heating cable to create today’s Cascade Garden.
