Check out the pinpoint and “firefly” lighting in the Tropical Forest Conservatory, the illuminated gift-wrapped boxes in the Winter Light Garden and the new “aurora borealis” architectural lighting in the Sunken Garden

A new Garden Railroad will be on view, too, taking Road Trips Gardeners on a high-seas adventure to a tropical Treasure Island of joke-telling pirates, gleaming treasures and chugging trains.

Built around a “Holiday Magic!” theme, the displays of this year’s Winter Flower Show feature vignettes including an extravagant winter feast, Santa’s workshop and a sparkling New Year’s Eve celebration.

The magic is brought to life in signature Phipps fashion with artful LED lights, detailed props, decorated fir and pine trees, amaryllis, orchids and more than 2,000 poinsettias.

The winter shows run through January 7, 2018. Admission is $17.95 for adults, $16.95 for seniors and students, and $11.95 for children (ages 2 – 18). Daily hours are 9:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. for the Winter Flower Show, and 5 to 11 p.m. for the Winter Light Garden. Phipps closes at 5 p.m. December 24 and reopens at 9:30 a.m. December 26.
