Winter Wonder Season

Winter Wonder

Now–March 21, 2021

The Beauty of Winter

This winter, it’s all about outdoor spacious, indoor oasis, and the power of story.

Outside, envelop yourself in a feeling of peace and tranquility with a walk amongst the dramatic silhouettes of trees that stretch far into the sky, as soothing, textural grasses and seed heads guide you along the way. Take time to examine the fine details of the winter garden, set against the fresh, crisp air of winter.

Inside, step into a sanctuary of warmth. Look up to an overhead garden of hanging baskets adorned with such vibrant beauties as jasmine, cape-primrose, and lipstick-plant. Find yourself in a paradise of flowers and foliage, bursting with color ... all in a beautiful indoor winter wonderland with a tropical twist.

Both outdoors and in, embark on a beautifully poignant journey with Voices in the Landscape, a series of 10 stops throughout the Gardens experienced in-person or virtually from home. In this sensory experience, follow along as storyteller Charlotte Blake Alston honors and celebrates the strength, resilience, and contributions of the African American community through the lens of horticulture and the power of story.

Just as our Gardens are a place of pleasure and respite, they are also a place of wellness and safety. Please honor the new visiting guidelines we’ve created in accordance with state and local regulations. It takes all of us to make our Gardens a world apart.

Now–March 21, 2021 Gardens Open 10:00 am–5:00 pm. Closed Tuesdays.

Please note: All Membership levels, except Gardens Premium Members, must make reservations at this time. Timed Admission Tickets are required.
