While the Garden’s spring spectacle hasn’t quite sprung, there are plenty of blooming plants in the Conservatory that are well worth a visit. Be on the lookout for the fleeting, day-long blooms of the walking iris and our stunning, seafoam-hued jade vine.

🌱As part of #plantlove at NYBG, we’re talking with people from all over the Garden about what inspires their passion for plants. Meet Cecilia Zumajo, a Ph.D. student and #femalescientist studying plant evolution and development of gymnosperms here at NYBG. 💚 #womenshistorymonth
“I grew up in Colombia, a neo-tropical country that exposed me to the enormous diversity of flowers and fruits, in terms of shapes, colors, textures, everything! When I came to New York, the landscape was very different. In Colombia, gymnosperms in particular were invasive. I only knew the pine forest which we cultivated for wood, which caused the soil to become very acidic. Nothing else grew there after the pines. But here, much of the green that you see during the winter comes from the gymnosperms! I think that’s what triggered my interest in them. I started looking at the reproductive structures. When you see the seeds, they don’t have fruits, and it’s fascinating to me that they developed a different strategy for dispersal! I like to walk in the Benenson Ornamental Conifers, viewing the different tree architecture, bark patterns, and leaf colors, each a unique aspect of my love for these plants.”

Roberto Burle Marx is the definition of #plantlove—an influential landscape architect whose contributions to environmental conservation and the visual arts left a lasting impact on our world.

As we near the first day of spring, we’ve got roses on the brain. We can’t wait for the first buds to open in the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden. And with a new documentary premiering at NYBG this Friday (still a few tickets left!) that details the incredible accomplishments of Beatrix Farrand, the designer of this historic garden, we thought a little preview of what’s to come couldn’t hurt. Farrand was one of the most influential and innovative garden designers of the early 20th century, and a woman pioneer in the field. Here’s to a beautiful season! #WomensHistoryMonth

🕰 🌿 The Indian clock vine (#Thunbergiamysorensis), currently blooming, is one of the crown jewels of our Haupt Conservatory’s Aquatic House, where you’ll find some of the most fascinating forms of climbing and hanging flowers. #plantlove
