Welcome

Spike, the Chicago Botanic Garden's titan arum (Amorphophallus titanum), has drawn more than 50,000 admirers to the Garden. The Garden is humbled and grateful to all who have come 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. Check for updates here and @chicagobotanic #CBGSpike.

Enjoy the Bromeliad Society of Greater Chicago Show & Sale, stop in at the Garden Chef Series, or try the Family Drop-in Activities in the Native Plant Garden.
 
Please Note: Traffic may be heavy today due to tonight's performance at Ravinia. We appreciate your patience. Approaching the Garden entrance from the east on Green Bay Road can be faster; the members-only lane is on the left. Buy parking in advance.
