The building itself is just lovely, a perfect home to house all these wonderful plants. Each room has a large variety, with lots of information about the plants everywhere you go. I learned lots of fun facts!

This fascinating collection of plants, housed in a magnificently restored building, is well worth a visit. Different plant environments display carefully labeled plants from around the world. Knowledgeable staff members patiently answered our many questions. The orchid collection is especially beautiful.

Admission to this exhibit was $9/per person, and even our slow, casual stroll through the greenhouses took just over 10 minutes. While there were hundreds of specimens to see, unless you are big on botanicals, you may find this activity falls a bit short. We...More
