About this Indoor Garden
Unique permanent collections provide beautiful texture and a backdrop for dramatic seasonal displays that drape this Garden in an ever-changing palette of colors. A meandering central water feature made up of waterfalls, pools, and fountains adds sound and motion to this dynamic Garden.

The East Conservatory was completed in 1973 and replaced the 1928 Azalea House. Plagued by poor ventilation and leaks throughout its history, the garden was redesigned and the structure’s roof was replaced in 2006 with a ridge-and-furrow roof in keeping with the traditional architecture of the adjacent Exhibition Hall and Orangery.
