Orchid Extravaganza Season

Orchid Extravaganza

Now–March 22, 2020

Indoor Color ... Outdoor Calm

Opposites attract this winter with Orchid Extravaganza.

With bold, vivacious hues found in a sea of golden Oncidium … to swirls of salmon Phalaenopsis … to a tapestry of vibrant Vanda, our Conservatory is a vision of color and texture. Vivid baskets, columns, orbs, and more fanciful forms elevate our indoor world of whimsy and warmth.

Our outdoor gardens illustrate the beauty of the winter landscape, where the dramatic silhouettes of majestic trees and delicate grasses together paint a setting of quiet tranquility.

Inside and out, wondrous winter awaits.

On View Now–March 22, 2020

Timed Admission Tickets required. Sell out likely.
