8 Beautiful Indoor Gardens That Will Keep You Warm All Winter
Take a walk in our “Winter Wonderland” as we bring to life one of the most beloved carols of all time. With lush evergreens, bright blooms, illuminated glass and our stunning outdoor Winter Light Garden, Phipps will sparkle and shine like never before.
Written by Pennsylvania native Dick Smith in 1904, “Winter Wonderland” is perhaps one of the best-known carols of all time. For this year’s Winter Flower Show, the lyrics of this delightful song will be brought to life as they are represented through artful arrangements of LED lights, decorated fir trees, whimsical props, and, of course, plenty of seasonal favorites such as colorful poinsettias, aromatic paperwhites and showy amaryllis.
Adding to the festive atmosphere, indoor displays of glowing glass will make a return this year, while outside, in the Outdoor and Discovery Gardens, the Winter Light Garden will sparkle with luminous orbs, trees and fountains of light. Garden Railroad will be on view too, taking you back in time to the Gold Rush as you explore the landscapes of northern California and Mt. Shasta — complete with prospectors, water features, interactive buttons for children to push, and miniature living plants, shrubs and trees.
