Denver Botanical Gardens' Conservatory

Denver’s  Boettcher Memorial Tropical Conservatory displays exotic tropical specimens from the tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world. Various food plants add special interest, including bananas (Musa spp.), chocolate (Theobroma cacao), coffee (Coffea arabica) and pineapple (Ananas spp.)  Chihuly’s Garden Cycle exhibits were originally located in glass conservatories of botanical gardens, so some of the glass was found in the conservatory as expected.
