Sibley Horticultural Center
Open daily, 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
Something is always spectacularly in bloom at the John A. Sibley Horticultural Center. This one-of-a-kind garden/greenhouse encompasses five acres of native and exotic plants, and seasonal displays, within its tropical conservatory, sub-Mediterranean conservatory, sculpture garden, grotto, main conservatory and outdoor garden. The Sibley Center also contains an exhilarating 22-foot indoor waterfall; a bronze sculpture, “Partners in Time”; a carrara marble sculpture, “Dove of Peace”.
Regardless of when you visit the Sibley Horticultural Center, you will always find beauty and color, as the indoor displays change at least eight times a year and the outdoor displays change a minimum of five times a year, complementing the permanent foundation plantings. Seasonal displays include Autumn chrysanthemums, Winter poinsettias and, in the Spring, one of the nation’s largest collections of Easter lilies.
In Spring and Fall, The Garden Center, located in the John A. Sibley Horticultural Center Gift Shop, offers a variety of seasonal plants for guests to purchase and take home, including many varieties visitors see in the gardens. Items available for purchase include azaleas, fragrant tea olive, blueberries and other edibles, hydrangeas, Japanese maples, ferns, perennials and more.
