The warmth of spring is still around the corner, but in the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory’s Sunken Garden, the sunshine season has already arrived.
Minnesota’s most beautiful room is in full bloom for the Summer Flower Show, the longest-running flower show of the year, now through September 29. A sensory delight of sugary heliotrope and citrusy lemon verbena, the season’s most fragrant flower show features a profusion of Chicago Peace Roses, Oriental Lilies and Copacabana Calla Lilies, with surprising purple, lavender and peach accents provided by Liberty Yellow Snap Dragons, Foxglove, Peach Petunias, Bird Nest Fern, and many more.
Thanks to your contributions to Como Friends, the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory has the resources it needs to design, seed and grow five seasonal flower shows every year—a Minnesota tradition that started back in 1925. The Summer Flower Show is open every day, and is free to all visitors.
