Beautiful assortment of different plants and flowers. Their orchids are stunning. A great place for nature enthusiasts. There are activities for children as well. The prices are very reasonable with additional student and senior discounts.

The structure is visually impressive. There is a large variety of plants on display. Many plants are beautiful, but we found others in need of some TLC.

We were not impressed by the displays, but it was nice to walk through on a chilly April day. I would not say this is a "must see."

The garden has done a nice job of creating floral exhibits from a variety of climates. The butterfly conservatory was a treat.
