Every trip to Phipps is a unique experience. This time the orchids and bromeliads were in bloom, colorful kalanchoe were everywhere, and the bonsai collection was featured.

Lovely Orchids and plants but Late Spring and Summer would be the best time to visit to get the most out of your visit. They have limited free parking but plenty of paid metered parking within a few block radius.

Terrific show. The exhibits both inside and outside, provide a fun way to enter the holiday season. Each year the Phipps has improved its outdoor display which brightens the night.
