Welcome

The Chicago Botanic Garden is humbled and grateful to all who came to view and visit Spike. Read here about Spike's pollination, and see the remarkable spathe of the plant on display in the Semitropical Greenhouse. The titan arum's inner workings are on view through Tuesday at noon. Volunteers will happily fill you in on what happened with Spike over the weekend.  

After you see Spike, head out to the Dixon Prairie, where the false sunflowers and compass plants are nearly as high as your head (and taller than the kids)! Also in bloom is the deep red floss flower in the Circle Garden.
