Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh

Beautiful conservation facility in Pittsburgh. They have several greenhouses and many displays. There are orchids, cactus, palms, fountains, kid zones, herbs and edibles and several other displays. They have a turtle lagoon, a lotus and Lily flower area and a green roof.

A fern from Peru originally. I love the black stems and delicate foliage.

Their orchard house was impressive.

They have one greenhouse with butterflies and caterpillars.
