Boettcher Memorial Tropical Conservatory, Denver Botanic Gardens
Opened in 1966, the Boettcher Memorial Tropical Conservatory is the largest single-structure tropical conservatory in the country. The myriad of food plants add special interest to the collection. As you can see from the shots above, it is a beautiful space full of light and color.
Photographs include: Hura crepitans (Monkey No-climb tree), Acalypha hispida (Chenille plant), Zingiber spectabile ‘Singapore Gold’ (Beehive Ginger), Vriesia hieroglyphica (“King of the Bromeliads”), Musa species (Banana), and Verschaffeltia splendida (Seychelles Stilt Palm).
