Pass through the portico to enjoy the artful combination of colorful and fragrant plants in the Palm House. On the right, the cool Cactus and Succulent House displays plump and spiny plants from arid regions of the world. On the left, the steamy Tropical House hosts ferns, bromeliads, rainforest cacti and other tender plants.
Highlights this Winter
