Phipps Conservatory Winter Flower Show and Lights

Alex and I braved the crowds to see the winter flower and light show at the Phipps last Saturday. It was definitely worth it. I highly recommend the Phipps Conservatory! It has the best collection I have ever seen! If you’re planning on visiting, keep in mind that the place fills up fast after dark!

I was so sad when I got to the Phipps and realized I forgot the memory card for my camera. However, these pictures I took with the iphone 4s aren’t too shabby.

Sorry I don’t have some of the cultivar and species names. I will definitely do better next time.

Enjoy!

I was so excited to see the cultivar of Codiaeum variegatum in the back! And can you believe that the blue flowers in front are actually Solenostemon scutellaroides? They’re huge!! I loved the pale blue green color of the Hydrangea macrophylla!

Alex was surprised by how huge Crinum asiaticum Lilies are. I saw a lot of these during work at Disney!
