The Denver Botanical Garden's Tropical Conservatory

Going to Colorado this Summer with my family, led us naturally, the Botanic Garden there in Denver. I have a membership to our local botanical garden in Missouri, and they have reciprocal memberships or discounts elsewhere. Since we were traveling out to this part of the country anyway, it was my husband's idea to go to the garden in Denver, with our boys. Did he have to twist my arm? No way! This is a collection of photos from their nice tropical conservatory that I was able to capture there. It is neat, and has a tree house feel to it, with different levels etc.

*Please make sure to click on any of the photos you like, to make the photo larger to see it more clearly.

Photos of Some Plants in the Denver Tropical Conservatory

Photo 1 - I love the pattern on this unique tree, and the huge red tropical flower was simply gorgeous. The trunk though is always what catches my eye when I look at this photo. This is, to me, a beautiful example of what can be found in the tropics, something so unique and different and "alive."

Photo 2 - Another neat tree trunk, with a unique leafy vine clinging to it. I just really liked how it looked, there is something so unique, almost "perfect" about it.

Photo 3 - A unique looking palm, with some berries hanging near. I have never seen a palm like this before, if that is indeed what it is. I include it here as part of the greater tropical garden photo gallery, to document that.

Photo 4 - Flowers in orange and bright yellows along with some unique patterning. I have never seen flowers quite like these before.

Photo 5 - One of my favorite photos of this garden, as it shows one of the most unique plants I think I have ever seen in my life. I absolutely love how wild and tropical this plant looks. Such a gem for sure, and something I haven't seen in other tropical gardens. Perhaps that is because I didn't see it in its "bloom stage", however.

Photo 6 - I believe these are young, green cacao pods growing in the tropical garden there. What I wouldn't give to have one of these trees growing in my own garden if I could!

Photo 7 - A bright pink, pretty anthurium flower. These go so wonderfully in gardens like these I think, and brighten up what can be a sometimes very shaded garden area because of all the big leafy plants and trees.

Photo 8 - A very unique flowering fruit of some kind, growing out of the side of a very tropical looking tree. I loved this and how unique it is.

Photo 9 - A neatly designed trunk of some kind of tree with amazing colors. I just loved seeing these cool plants there.

Photo 10 - A boldly and unique shaped flower, likely a bromeliad, but I was unsure because it's a little bit different than some of the bromeliads I have seen.

Photo 11 - Some fun, brightly lit up yellow, cone shaped flowers that look not too different from corn on the cobs! Well, they do look a bit more unique, but that is what came to mind for some reason. I thought they looked so cool.

Photo 12 - I hesitated putting this photo in, but I very much wanted to even though I am not sure what this is. It was growing in the garden at the Tropical Conservatory in Denver. I just think it looks so interesting, all the little bumps and protruding parts. It looks like something from out of this world to me.

Photo 13 - Ending with this one, one of my favorite flowers from this conservatory. The bright colors and slim design here are simply stunning and so unique and fascinating to me.

** I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to visit this amazing tropical garden in Denver Colorado. I think the variety of tropical plants and flowers and trees was incredible. Do know, this is just a sampling of what I saw there, and at only one particular point of the year. I mention this because in my experience in going to these gardens, depending on when you go, you will get a whole other sampling of great plants and flowers. Tropical gardens are so "alive" to me, and so interesting and beautiful.

One of my favorite parts was experiencing this with my family that knows what a flower, and garden "nut" I am. I was constantly hearing "Mom, come see this!" from my 13 and 17 year old boys, and also my husband, who were really there just for me. It makes me smile now to recall that. I think they really enjoyed it too.

I loved the way you laid this out and also gave us the option of clicking on any photo to see a full sized and framed view of it!

How wonderful that your teenaged boys are also learning to love nature and were excited to show you different exhibits.

Voted up across the board except for funny.
