Conservatory Exhibits

Now Showing: The Fernery Exhibit 

Open May 14-July 17

Horticulturist Brent Tucker looked to his own yard for inspiration for The Fernery conservatory exhibit. Brent loves ferns and has many varieties growing in his yard. For The Fernery exhibit, he is including nearly two dozen varieties, including Boston, Maiden Hair, Australian Tree, Staghorn, Brake, Holly, Antenna, Bird Nest, Kangaroo Paw, Blue Star and Rabbit's Foot. Vibrant pops of color come from several varieties of coleus, including Gay's Delight, Kiwi and Gold Lace to name a few. 

The Fernery, which is open 9 a.m.-6 p.m. daily through July 17, is included with Garden admission.
