What’s in Bloom?

There’s something blooming year-round at the botanical gardens and arboretum. Fall and winter months find orchids, bromeliads, cactuses, and other plants blooming in the conservatory at Matthaei. For a look at what’s blooming at Matthaei-Nichols throughout the seasons scroll down for photo galleries.
