Longwood from Home

With April just around the corner, we hope you’re delighting in the signs of spring all around us. Read on for plenty of springtime fun here in Longwood from Home, as we share the winner of our spring plant bracket, which iconic Longwood plant just made its new home in our Camellia House, exclusive Member discounts and offers perfect for seasonal planting, and much more.

And the Winner Is … 
After four weeks of tough match ups and thousands of votes, we are excited to crown the spring plant bracket champion. The honor goes to … the tulip! Want to see these beauties in person?

Dive into Longwood Plant History
With the Longwood Reimagined: A New Garden Experience project underway, many of our plants are on their way to new homes in our Main and East Conservatory, including our spectacular rabbit’s-foot fern, which just moved to its new space in the Camellia House in the East Conservatory. Originally planted in 1953 and formerly housed in the Tropical Terrace, this 70-year old giant is our largest hanging basket, measuring more than 9.5 feet in diameter.
