|Brookside Gardens Winter Display
November 28, 2014 - January 11, 2015
The WVMGRS teamed up with the staff of Brookside Gardens for the 10th year in a row, putting on a special display of trains and holiday greenery. The South Conservatory comes to life with a landscape in miniature, as trains and trollies wind their way through town and country scenes, past one-of-a kind models of the Brookside Gardens Conservatories, the Dentzel Carousel and the Chautauqua Tower of Glen Echo Park. Colorful plantings light up both greenhouses, with bold Poinsettias in red, pink and white blending with other strong colors of Clerodendrum quadriloculare, fireworks flower, Bouganvillea, and Salvia. Silver and blue Plectranthus, white snapdragons, blue Browallia, purple Nicotiana and peppers provide accent and contrast in the scene.

The display is located in the South Conservatory of Brookside Gardens, at 1500 Glenallen Avenue, Wheaton, Maryland. For more information about Brookside, please visit their website.
