Thousands of poinsettias bursting with rich, vibrant color fill the floral display hall in a glowing tribute to the holidays during the spectacular holiday poinsettia show. In the center of it all, a magnificent and majestic 20-foot-tall poinsettia tree stands tall. Surrounded by a cascade of twinkling white lights, glittering ornaments and the whir and whistle of model garden trains, this show evokes the warmest greetings of goodwill and cheer.
More than 5000 poinsettias in nearly 20 different varieties were grown for the 2018 display. See varieties of multi-hued, deep red, sparkling white and speckled poinsettias that vary in hue, texture, height and bloom time. Varieties will be replaced as needed to provide an ever-changing display.
To build the holiday ambience, model garden trains will whir and whistle around dozens of miniature Omaha-area landmarks, such as the First National Tower, Woodmen Tower, Union Pacific's headquarters, the Rose Theater and numerous Old Market buildings.
To help families make more holiday memories, they can visit the Family Chill Zone on the festival garden patio to participate in a variety of fun, family-friendly activities. Create a craft, watch the action at the wildlife trees, play a game, explore the igloos, paint on ice, gather around the fire, and enjoy the winter weather. During the AGLOW evenings, S'mores kits will be available for purchase from the cafe and guests may roast marshmallows.
Standard garden admission rates apply to visit the holiday poinsettia show. Members are admitted free. Join today!
