Welcome to our new blog!

This is an exciting place where you will get to see and read about what’s happening in and around the spectacular gardens here in Washington, DC. Routine posts will be made by our very own horticulturists, and garden enthusiasts including upcoming events, photos of the gardens through the seasons and back stories you wouldn’t hear anywhere else. It is a creation done by Chloe Prince, an Informatics student from the University of Michigan, who volunteered to intern with us for one week on an Alternative Spring Break (ASB) program.

“Working with Smithsonian Gardens has been an amazing experience! This is my first time visiting D.C. and the gardens and the people behind them are more extraordinary than I could have ever imagined! Located throughout the city, they add serene beauty year round and really make exploring the monuments and museums a magnificent experience! Walking through the Orchid Mystique: Nature’s Triumph exhibition was truly a dream! It was incredible to see and smell the stunning collection of thousands of orchid varieties from around the world! I have had a wonderful first experience to the city and Smithsonian Gardens. I can’t wait to come back and visit again!”
