Grace Chapman – Director of Horticulture at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden located in Richmond Virginia.

The building you see is the conservatory that houses a collection of tropical plants such as palms and orchids but we also have some beds that we change out 4 times a year to provide seasonal interest all year round.

We just completed a bedding change out. We removed our plants from our holiday display to bring in tropical for the spring.

Some of the things we are using are Black Magic Colocasia, Bromeliads and also some butterfly attracting plants.

This is a different type of display for us and I really cant wait for the visitors to come see it for themselves.
