The holiday season isn't complete without a visit to Phipps, and on Fri., Nov. 17, Holiday Magic! Winter Flower Show and Light Garden will return to Phipps' glowing gardens. With a charming theme of "Season's Greenings," guests are sure to be captivated by the wonderful winter themes and lovely lights throughout. Phipps has pulled out all the stops for this year's Winter Flower Show with magnificent new displays featuring holiday trees adorned in jewel tones, exquisitely detailed props, and our signature floral delights, including amaryllis, orchids and 21 varieties of poinsettias. Plus, the beauty isn't just indoors: our celebrated Winter Light Garden, fills our Outdoor and Discovery Gardens with spectacular lights in vivid shades that will awe guests of all ages.
