Part II of the Fall Flower Show is now open through November 28th (Holiday Flower Show begins December 4th). While many Minnesota gardens are winding down for the winter season, the Sunken Garden at the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory will be in full bloom! The Fall Flower Show features a variety of chrysanthemums and fall favorites. The first half of the Fall Flower Show will be yellow and silver. Dwarf sunflowers, marigolds, and ornamental peppers will add to the cheerful display. The second half of the Fall Flower Show will be equal parts orange, yellow, and white.
And with the cold fall nights upon us, it is time for the flamingos to go to their winter home, behind-the-scenes, here at Como. One of the most common questions we get it is “what animals can I see in the winter?” Well, the only animals that you won’t see in the winter are the flamingos and the Galápagos tortoises! Fall & Winter are actually the best times to visit and get up close to all your favorite animals (unless of course, your favorites are the flamingos and Galápagos tortoises)!
