Phipps’ Winter Flower Show: Home for the Holidays brings whimsical, elegant and festive displays back to our glowing glasshouse. With a canopy of twinkling lights, fragrant decorated trees and, of course, thousands of poinsettias in a wide variety of hues and patterns, this show is sure to create special holiday memories with friends and family.

Exhibit Features

  • Marvel at poinsettia trees made up of 50 poinsettias each as a shower of paper star lanterns glows above
  • Explore a horticultural home away from home as living room furniture — such as armchairs, a mantel, chandeliers and tree skirts — are brought to life with plant materials
  • Delight at Phipps' magical carousel as its flashing lights are reflected in the pond of the Victoria Room
  • See a cozy cabin sitting snugly amidst a snowy forest made up of blue, purple, white and silver plants while twinkling lights overhead create the effect of falling snow
  • Learn about different animals' winter habits with delightful topiary bears, foxes, groundhogs and more
  • Look out for special varieties of winter plants, such as Euphorbia 'Christmas Mouse,' which has small rounded bracts that resemble mouse ears, and Euphorbia 'Diamond Snow,' which has pure white bracts that look like they're covered in freshly fallen snow

To protect guest safety at this busy time of year, Phipps must significantly limit crowd and staff capacity and streamline the path through our campus for this year’s Winter Flower Show experience. As a result, we have focused on designing a magnificent Winter Flower Show and placed the outdoor Winter Light Garden portion on a one-year hiatus. This year’s indoor displays will include a number of the Garden’s fan-favorite colorful orbs and cones, and we look forward to sharing the full Winter Light Garden experience again in 2021.

A safe and happy holiday has never looked so beautiful — and we can't wait to share the season's splendor with you!
