The Central Garden and Conservatory are lush with tropical plants featuring large leaves, unusual colors and spectacular blooms. Join Horticulturist Jayton Howard and Garden Guide Julia Cothron to explore this tropical extravaganza, which will be especially luscious for our 40th Anniversary Flourish celebration! You will be transported to an exotic paradise as you explore beauty and biodiversity. You’ll even see a whimsical “turtle topiary” created from colorful annuals and succulents basking in the middle of the Foundation Garden, surrounded by aquatic plants such as waterlilies and lotus. Get ideas for creating a tropical vibe in large pots or on a trellis and become inspired to garden with tropical plants.
