Why are all the other states which have botanical gardens having their regular indoors greenings AND indoor train displays but this one is only having everything outside in the cold?
Another long standing, special tradition, the trains at U.S. Botanic Garden return for 2021! A celebration of agriculture around the world.
Looking for affordable outings this season to explore? Don’t forget about you Smithsonian museums in DC where entry is free! You won’t want to miss this beautiful train display at the U.S. Botanic Garden
The arrival of the first frosts recently has us reminiscing of warmer days, and thinking about our rockstar plants that performed so well.
This lovely group of purple poppy mallows (Callirhoe involucrata) were spotted at the U.S. Botanic Garden in DC over the summer. Just a delightful plant that doesn’t mind the hot, dry sand.
Now that most things are done blooming, let’s reflect…Did you plant something new, or something you unexpectedly enjoyed? Tell us in the comments below!👇👇👇
Wing it to Washington! When you’re ready to see D.C., flying BTR’s a capital idea! Make a short hop on American Airlines, Delta Air Lines or United
to reflect at magnificent memorials, explore the U.S. Botanic Garden, or learn about language at Planet Word Museum. For convenience, BTR wins by a landslide. Visit https://www.flybtr.com.
We love this simple sidewalk planting of purple fountain grass, coral , and lantana at the U.S. Botanic Garden. All of these plants appreciate fertile garden soil amended with products such as Black Gold Compost Blend, Garden Soil, or Peat Moss.￼
A New Movie Proposal
James T. Struck BA, BS, AA, MLIS
In a less competitive image of flowers, plants, angiosperms, gymnosperms, we introduce 50 different plants to the world to help people learn about plants. The different plants from roses, tulips, herbs, geraniums, daisies, sunflowers, chrysanthemums, lilies, violets, corn, apple trees, orange trees, flowering trees introduce themselves and talk about their existences and histories. The movie does not involve racing or competition just 10-50 flowers talking about themselves.
The movie viewers leave the movie theater feeling “Good I just learned about 10-50 different plants and flowers”
