(Last chance to see this Patrick Dougherty stick scuplture “Diamonds in the Rough” which will be dismantled Feb 9-17)
Now through February 13, 2013, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden has reduced admission fees to $5 for adults/seniors (reg. $11), and $4 for kids 3-12 (reg. $7). With 70-degree weather and admission over 50% off, this will be a great weekend to explore the garden!
Why Visit a Botanical Garden in Winter?
1. Plants of Winter Interest & Conservatory
“Botanical gardens are particulary attractive on a winter weekend. Many have areas or walks that are planted specifically to look good in the winter months…More alluring still, are those with glasshouses. There can be few more pleasant ways to take refuge from freezing winds than to wander for an hour or two among beautiful exotic plants in a steamy, jungle-like atmopshere….” From the The Wonderful Weekend Book by Elspeth Thompson
2. Special Self-guided tour of Asian Plants in Western Landscapes.
Look for the symbol (right) in the Garden to find out which plants native to Asia are mainstays in Western Gardens.
3. Exhibit Asian Gardens: A Paradox
Ginter Gallery II in the Education Building Hallway features an exhibit highlighting Asian Garden Design principles.
