Gardenland Express

The annual Gardenland Express Holiday Flower and Train Show delights visitors of all ages with G-scale trains traveling through a festive miniature landscape set against beautiful traditional holiday plantings of poinsettias. Journey through the Garden’s history of botanical exploration, plant collecting and the growth of our plant collections in this year’s annual Gardenland Express holiday flower and train show! Explore the Garden’s horticulture, research and conservation projects, and discover Garden stories from the field related to discovery of plants, plant collecting, documentation, propagation, culture and conservation of plants in the wild as we define the roles of botanic gardens and living collections by imparting information and fostering understanding of plants, plant diversity and plant conservation.
