Exhibits at Powell Gardens
Now Showing in the Conservatory
The 2,500-square-foot Conservatory in the Visitor Education Center is home to six stunning exhibits annually. Visit often to see them all! The Living Room runs through Sunday, May 11.
The 'Living' Room, March 15-May 11, 2014
Have you met the Moss family? Visit now through May 11 to see this fictional family's whimsical home as The "Living" Room exhibit returns to the conservatory. This creative exhibit turns ordinary household items into living works of art.
From plant-padded dining chairs to a living floral rug, the Moss family home is literally alive with color and texture. New for this season will be living wallpaper--an inspiration for a vertical garden! Have fun seeking out gems from our collection of gorgeous orchids through this imaginative display.
The exhibit is open daily through Sunday, May 11, and is included with regular Garden admission.
