Events and Exhibits
What's In Bloom?
The fall garden is coming to life with a new flush of roses, chrysanthemums, and other blooms, as well as ornamental grasses and foliage color.
Wicked Plants Display
While there are far more heroes than villains in the botanical world, some plants are REALLY wicked. This display will showcase plants from our collection that poison, paralyze, puncture, intoxicate, eat flesh, and otherwise offend, some of which we commonly grow in our homes and gardens.
Ghoulish Garden Adventure - RESCHEDULED!
Discover the things in nature that make the fall so festive! Dress in costume and explore a variety of fun and educational activity stations throughout the garden.
Merry and Bright - Holiday Poinsettia Show
It's been said that "There's no place like home for the holidays", and the living room is certainly the heart of the home. This holiday season, we invite you to step into our living room, as the floral display hall is transformed into a comfy, cozy space that is full of joy, cheer, and of course, plants.
Bright Nights
Experience a multitude of festive delight as flowers and foliage combine with light to make the season Merry & Bright!
