U.S. Botanic Garden Production Facility Open House

Only once each year do we invite the public to see our growing facility, the largest greenhouse complex supporting a public garden in the United States. The site, completed in 1994, includes 85,000 square feet under glass divided into 34 greenhouse bays and 16 environmental zones. In addition to foliage and nursery crops, you’ll see all of the USBG collection not currently on display, including orchids, medicinal plants, insectivorous plants and rare and endangered species. Register for one of the tour times to meet the growers, ask questions and wander through this working wonderland of plants.
