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.
In the center of it all, the magnificent 20-foot-tall poinsettia tree (made from more than 700 plants) stands tall, surrounded by a cascade of carefully wrapped presents. Adding a bit of nostalgia, guests can enjoy the whir and whistle of a model garden train as it goes around and around the majestic tree.
Of course the tree alone does not make a fully festive living room. Thousands of vibrant poinsettias, amaryllis, and other festive florals and foliage deck the hall. A larger than life fireplace and mantel (that features succulent stockings hung gently with care), candles, living wreaths, furry friends, and a giant rug fashioned from a variety of plant material showcase the beauty of nature. You'll also find touches of holiday decor throughout the Marjorie K. Daugherty Conservatory.
More than 9000 poinsettias in nearly 30 different varieties were grown for the 2020 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.
Add S'more joy to your visit by toasting a marshmallow at the fire pits in the Family Chill Zone. This gathering place gives families a place to relax, warm up, and to enjoy the winter weather.
S'mores kits will be available for purchase at the front desk.
NOTE: The holiday show has been designed as a one-way experience with ample room to allow for social distancing. Proper facial masks or coverings must be worn in the visitor and education center and in the Marjorie K. Daugherty Conservatory.
