Boettcher Memorial Tropical Conservatory / Denver Botanic Gardens

Here are a few more shots from inside the Conservatory.  After the cacti and succulent collections, the tropical plants are always my next stop anywhere I go.  I tend to snap a few shots for randomc now, too.

Orchid & Bromeliad Collection, Greenhouse Complex / Denver Botanic Gardens

Many of the plants in this collection are swapped in and out of public areas when they are in their prime (flowering).  Additionally, like all the of the greenhouses facing the public walkway, display tables hold many of the prime specimens or portions of the bonsai collection.

Not too shabby of a collection, right bromeliace?

We noticed a fair amount of powdery mildew on the crepe myrtle so today I trimmed and thinned, and tomorrow I am going to treat it with neem oil.  I need to go back and find a picture from the summer we planted it …

Guys check out this submission!
Some great shots of interesting plants, along with some bromeliads!

Thanks Cactguy! 

I love the Roxburgh fig and the Red Sealing Wax Palms, but have no idea about the bromeliads. Are any of them anything of much interest?
