What a surprise in Omaha! We toured the gardens on a fairly cold day at the end of March - but inside the greenhouse it was cozy. Some amazing tropical plants and trees I've seen nowhere else - I especially liked the Bismarck Palm, you've got to see it. And the Lobster Palm!. After strolling through the gardens, don't forget to go across the street and climb the stairs up to Kenefick Park, the Union Pacific Railroad monument to a former CEO of the company - view of the Missouri River between two giant locomotives - one an old "Big Boy" steam engine, the other the largest diesel ever used.

We visited in December and enjoyed all the poinsettias as well as many other plants. Much work was put into the display.

Lauritzen is always a delight no matter the season.
The currant exhibit is METAMORPHOSIS - reclaimed plastic and how our environment is impacted. The gardens in the summer are restful and peaceful. My favorite is the rose garden, but it is hard to pick a favorite!! If you are local the membership is well worth the price. Come rest learn and explore a sensory delight!!

Had a great show of how plastic impacts our world thru artistic displays and information kiosks! Some are LED lit and also kinetic. Great to see in evening shows but great during the day.
