Beautiful assortment of different plants and flowers. Their orchids are stunning. A great place for nature enthusiasts. There are activities for children as well. The prices are very reasonable with additional student and senior discounts.

The structure is visually impressive. There is a large variety of plants on display. Many plants are beautiful, but we found others in need of some TLC.

The garden has done a nice job of creating floral exhibits from a variety of climates. The butterfly conservatory was a treat.
