Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens
The holiday season isn’t complete without a visit to Phipps, and Holiday Magic: Let It Glow! promises to be our biggest and brightest show yet! Phipps has pulled out all the stops for this year’s Winter Flower Show with dazzling new displays of holiday trees, topiaries, exquisitely detailed props, and our signature floral delights, including amaryllis, orchids and more than 2,000 poinsettias. From a newly-restored Palm Court filled with trees mounted on oversized music boxes to a Serpentine Room of nutcrackers, toboggans and tea sets, one amazing display after another will dazzle your senses and warm your holiday spirit. Plus, in our Outdoor and Discovery Gardens, our must-see Winter Light Garden will sparkle with luminous orbs, trees, fountains, a tunnel of lights and an all-new ice tower display that will mesmerize guests of all ages.
The new Garden Railroad: Memories in Motion display is on view, too, taking you on a treasured locomotive journey through the years at Phipps, with fun, interactive features at every stop, and our Tropical Forest Cuba exhibit will be accentuated with 250 feet of lights — including pink globe lights, illuminated trees and pendant lights — to give off a vibrant glow of its own!
