Spring Flower Show

Spring Flower ShowMarch 10-25, 2018

10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily

Springtime is blooming at Olbrich as the Atrium is transformed into an oasis of colorful, fragrant flowers.

Many of the spring annuals featured in the show are grown in Olbrich's production greenhouse. Beneficial bugs - like the Amblyseius cucumeris, predator mite - are used in place of pesticides for the prevention, control, and management of various thrips species.
