The ponds and waterways throughout the Garden are adorned with over 80 varieties and over 300 potted and 100 free-range plants including night and day-blooming varieties. This event also features hands-on repotting demonstrations, plant sales (bromeliads, orchids, succulents, aquatic plants and garden accents). Guests will also have an opportunity to enjoy plein air artists creating original works of art, speaking with our plant experts throughout the day, and viewing the photos from the annual waterlily photo contest on display in the Hall of Giants.
General admission rates apply: $15 Adults, $13 Seniors, $10 Children ages 2-12. McKee members and children under 2 free.
