The York Street gardens will close at 3 p.m. on Aug. 25 for a concert.
But do not forget the truly wondrous display in Marnie's Pavilion. The Boettcher Memorial Tropical Conservatory is always dazzling, however this space was designed to show orchids up close and to let you experience the smaller plants more intimately. Winter is not welcome herein!
Best of all, you can walk from the main entrance (the Education Building) practically to the Japanese garden under glass! The doors leading into the Orangery open and close according to temperatures, but I find it especially fetching in winter....
Winter at Denver Botanic Gardens is emphatically NOT just branches, berries and bark! There is something blooming outdoors even in the longest, darkest days of winter...and the greenhouses, Orangery, Boettcher Memorial Conservatory and Marnie's Pavilion are the perfect escape from the doldrums. Do come by and visit often in this quietest and most contemplative of seasons!
