Greenhouse Blooms

Submitted January 22, 2013 at 3:17 PM

The snow is deep and the temperatures literally freezing, so for this blog we decided to head indoors to our beautiful greenhouse. The tropical warmth of our state-of-the-art greenhouse and dedicated staff create a lush, welcoming and beautiful display.



Tropical orange blooms    Hibiscus sp.  



Several species of Orchids are in bloom including the lovely Phaius sp.

If you'd like to see more, our greenhouse coordinator Michelle Cook will be leading a greenhouse tour on Thursday February 7th at 12:30, register soon as there are only 25 spots available!
Whether you decide to enjoy a winter respite with our greenhouse tour or take an invigorating walk above the inversion, come enjoy the all seasons beauty of Red Butte Garden.
