Description

Housing many rare orchids, palms, bromeliads, and the occasional carnivorous plant, San Francisco's Conservatory of Flowers is no mere greenhouse. The brilliant white of this massive Victorian structure, itself surrounded by colorful gardens of Dahlia, virtually jumps out and demands your attention as you roam through Golden Gate Park. Examine over 2000 types of rare, prehistoric, and exotic plants in the permanent collection, or check out one of their latest exhibits. As opposed to the verdant collections that surround it, the Conservatory is a meeting of nature's beauty framed by one of the finest aesthetic buildings in San Francisco.
