Visit the U.S. Botanic Garden for the Holidays

Ever seen the Conservatory at the U.S. Botanic Gardens all dressed up and action-packed for the holidays?  No?!?  Then get yourself and your family, especially the kids, down there for the big show – on display from Thanksgiving Day through January 2.

The USBG’s popular holiday show is in two parts:

The Garden Railway exhibit.  Follow the trains and explore “Who Lives Here?” to see all kinds of delightful dwellings, from an opossum house and a critter condo to models of American presidential homes.

You’ll enter the main door of the conservatory to find everything else –  one of the largest indoor decorated trees in Washington, D.C., and the Garden Court decorated with plant-based models of the DC’s landmark buildings and their gorgeous seasonal plant displays.   All that on top of the permanent displays in the Conservatory.


Stephanie Fleming was raised at Behnke’s Nurseries in Beltsville. Her Mom, Sonja, was one of Albert & Rose Behnke’s four children. She was weeding from the moment she could walk and hiding as soon as she was old enough to run, so many weeds, so little time. Although she quickly learned how to pull out a perennial and get taken off of weed pulling duty.
