Bold strokes of color and texture abound throughout Longwood’s Conservatory creating an indoor paradise of whimsy and warmth. From the bottom of the indoor ponds, to the soaring galaxies of orchids hanging from the ceiling, the Conservatory is transformed into a sea of golden Oncidium …swirls of salmon Phalaenopsis … and a tapestry of vibrant Vanda. See for yourself why this intoxicating orchid event continues to draw and inspire thousands of visitors, year after year.
Then Take a Crisp Winter Walk with Someone you Love…
