Holiday Poinsettia Show
November 27, 2015 through January 3, 2016
9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily (closed Christmas Day and New Year's Day)

Thousands of poinsettias bursting with rich, vibrant color fill the floral display hall in a glowing tribute to the holidays during the spectacular holiday poinsettia show. In the center of it all, a magnificent and majestic 20-foot-tall poinsettia tree stands tall. Surrounded by a cascade of twinkling white lights, glittering ornaments and the whir and whistle of model garden trains, this show evokes the warmest greetings of goodwill and cheer.

More than 5000 poinsettias in 26 different varieties were grown for the 2014 display. See varieties of multi-hued, deep red, sparkling white and speckled poinsettias that vary in hue, texture, height and bloom time. Varieties will be replaced as needed to provide an ever-changing display.

To build the holiday ambience, model garden trains will whir and whistle across more than 300 feet of track around dozens of miniature Omaha-area landmarks, such as the First National Tower, Woodmen Tower, Union Pacific's headquarters, the Rose Theater and numerous Old Market buildings. 

Standard garden admission rates apply for this exhibit. Members are admitted free. Join today!
