Garfield Park Conservatory - Palm House

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 18 August 2016 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

After an extensive renovation in 2003, the Palm House was re-envisioned as an idealized tropical landscape. Taking advantage of the size and 60 foot high roof of this spectacular house, the planting design intersperses a large variety of tropical plants with graceful towering palms.

Photo captured July 10, 2016.

That is an amazing palm in the center. The path along the edge adds an attractive element that keeps the shot from being too centered.
