Showcase Garden ~ 2017 Exhibitions 

Immerse yourself in a landscape painted with colorful flowers. Our Showcase Garden changes four times a year to celebrate the changing seasons. 

Visit often to see winter flowers, bulbs and spring flowers, summer bloomers, mums and fall flowers and poinsettias. 


July 1-November 12

From summer to fall we celebrate our German twin, the City of Gera, with a special garden of European flavor. Gera was established in medieval times and retains evidence of its millennia of political and social changes. It lies within the “green heart of Germany,” the central state of Thuringia, and is conscious of its responsibilities for stewardship. Read more...

Snow Days

November 18-January 7

Do you remember when school was cancelled because of unexpected winter weather? Snow days were a surprise, a break in routine, an invitation to play. In the Conservatory’s holiday imagination, snowkids go out for snowball fights and forts while snowmoms bake cookies and prepare hot chocolate. Snowmen and snow angels mark the spot where families spent time together. After sunset the light lingers, bouncing off that white blanket of snow. Wet gloves and boots are dried by the fire and everyone recounts their tales of the day over a supper of soup and cheese toasties. Then it’s off to bed…because there might be school again tomorrow.
