Great Hall of Orchids: Tropical Tree
January 11–31, 2013
Oswald Visitor Center

This winter, the live poinsettia tree in the Visitor Center transforms into a tropical tree! Come see a variety of beautiful flowers - 400 orchids and 200 bromeliads, including Spanish moss - that traveled from Florida and bask in thoughts of warm weather. Then walk to the Snyder Building for another tropical flower display in the Meyer-Deats Conservatory.

With over 28,000 species and more than 300,000 cultivars, orchids belong to the most diverse family of plants known to man. They are also extremely adaptable - growing in tundra, rainforest, desert and swamps. In fact, more than 45 types of orchids grow natively in Minnesota. There are over 3,000 species of bromeliads; the most well known bromeliad is the pineapple! And Spanish moss is not a moss, but part of the bromeliad family.

Flowers, growing supplies and books are for sale in the Gift Store.
