The Lincoln Park Conservatory is a known attraction for local Chicagoans and out-of-towners alike.
Now, there’s an immersive Spring flower show available for your viewing pleasure. The exhibit, aptly titled the Pillars of Spring Flower Show, is open until May 8th and it’s honestly the perfect way to take in spring this year.
Known for its gorgeous sprawling rooms filled with flora and fauna alike, The Lincoln Park Conservatory decided to go for a more out-of-the-box approach to this new show. It invites viewers to reimagine gardens in a new way. Namely, from a vertical perspective. To help plant lovers reignite their passion, the Pillars of Spring showcase makes use of its venue, covering the room in wall displays and free standing pillars. This exhibit invites plant lovers to learn more about planting vertically in their own homes, too.
As you take in the cool-toned flowers, make note of the impressive range of more worldly selections. This years show will of course feature the usual geraniums, nemesias, peonies, daffodils, foxglove, snapdragons, and fuchsias. Alongside those favorites, there will also be more diverse plants thanks to Lincoln Park Conservatory horticulturalists. A few of the more notable featured plants hail from places like South Africa, Asia, Australia, and Southern Europe. The show will also include special hybridized plants like Orienpet Lilies and Baptisia.
Book your ticket here. Showings are available Wednesday through Sunday from 10 AM to 3 pm. Lastly, donations are accepted, but admission is free. To learn more, visit the Lincoln Park Conservatory website.
