The permanent exhibition is called "A World of Plants" and it showcases tropical rain forests, deserts, aquatic and carnivorous plants. The day I visited, it was so cold outside and as soon as I entered the rain forest area inside the Conservatory, my camera lens completely fogged up!
The lowland rain forest showcases many beautiful tropical plants, epiphytes, trees that provide rain forest canopies and the plants that enjoy life below them.
The upland rain forest showcases ferns, coffee trees, orchids, mosses and others.
In the desert section, plants from the Americas and Africa are on display. I had never seen Agave attenuata in bloom before and wow, it was stunning!
I wandered around the grounds for a bit after spending such a fantastic and exhilarating time inside the Conservatory. I was so happy to run into these lovely pine cone creatures!
It's such a great place any time of year. I can't wait to go back when spring begins to make an appearance and the garden comes alive.
Be sure to head over to Our Little Acre where Kylee is hosting the Conservatory World Tour, and take a virtual tour of some other fantastic conservatories around the country.
