A celebration of new hope and inspiration arrives with our Spring Flower Show: Scents of Wonder. Guests are invited to get nose-to-petal with thousands of aromatic lilies, tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and more spring favorites throughout the glasshouse. The conservatory will awaken the senses with room after room of nature's most beautiful spring blooms on display, bursting with vibrant colors and favorite fragrances.

In the Palm Court, we've bottled the scents of springtime as an oversized perfume bottle and apothecary jars mingle with tulips, daffodils and hyacinths. A sensory spa experience awaits in the Serpentine Room, where an ornate bathtub hosts blue hydrangeas beneath delightfully bubbly lanterns and laundry lines hung with crisp linens and fresh lavender. In the South Conservatory, a classic herb garden is brought to life with detailed, sharply manicured hedges, a gushing fountain and fragrant citrus trees.

More fun and whimsy await in abundant beds of lilacs, cineraria, petunias, snapdragons and additional spring floral favorites, plus treasured animal topiaries that will delight guests of all ages. Don't miss all of the colorful sights and wonderfully fragrant delights awaiting you at every turn in Phipps' new Spring Flower Show: Scents of Wonder!
