Blooming Beauties

Dendrobium purple flower with water drops on the petals.

Dendrobium hybrids have been top performers for us at the Conservatory. The orchid hybrids typically bloom once or twice a year. They thrive in almost full sun environments. Many of the hybrids are fragrant. If you have bright light and want to try your hand at something new, Dendrobium might be just the thing for you.

Garden Kaleidoscope

Designed by Robert Anderson, the garden kaleidoscope was inspired by an interest in ecology merged with the concepts of kaleidoscopes as an art form and outdoor sculpture. Special thanks to Sue Samoviski and City of Sculpture, and the generosity of some very generous donors to make this special gift in honor of Miami Hamilton's 50th anniversary!
