Merry & Bright


What’s Happening?

Thousands of poinsettias bursting with rich, vibrant color fill the floral display hall in a glowing tribute to the holidays during the spectacular holiday poinsettia show, Merry & Bright. In the center of it all, a magnificent and majestic 20-foot-tall poinsettia tree stands tall. Surrounded by festive foliage, glittering ornaments and the whir and whistle of model garden trains, this show evokes the warmest greetings of goodwill and cheer.

More than 7,500 poinsettias in more than 25 different varieties were grown for the 2021 display. See varieties of multi-hued, deep red, sparkling white and speckled poinsettias that vary in hue, texture, height and bloom time. Varieties will be replaced as needed to provide an ever-changing display.

Add S'more joy to your visit by toasting a marshmallow at the fire pits in the Family Chill Zone. This gathering place gives families a place to relax, warm up, play games, and to enjoy the winter weather. S'mores kits will be available for purchase at the front desk. 

Included with paid garden admission ($10+ tax, $5+ tax for ages 3-12), free for garden members and children 2 and under. 

Please note: the exhibit will be illuminated from 5 to 8 p.m. on select evenings for Bright Nights
