Garden Trains and Poinsettias in Omaha, Nebraska

Submitted by on December 21, 2016 – 8:19 amNo Comment

closeupThousands of poinsettias fill the floral display hall of the Marjorie K. Daugherty Conservatory at Lauritzen Gardens, 100 Bancroft Street, Omaha, Nebraska, during the holiday show — now through January 4, 2017.

In the center of it all: a 20-foot-tall poinsettia tree surrounded by a cascade of twinkling white lights, glittering ornaments and the “whir and whistle” of model garden trains.

More than 5000 poinsettias in 25 different varieties were grown for this year’s display: multi-hued, deep red, sparkling white and speckled poinsettias (varieties will be replaced as needed to provide an ever-changing display).

Model trains chug around dozens of miniature Omaha-area landmarks, such as the First National Tower, Woodmen Tower, Union Pacific’s headquarters, the Rose Theater and numerous Old Market buildings.

Road Trips Gardeners can visit daily between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., except Christmas and New Year’s Day.
