Welcome

All eyes are on Spike, in the Semitropical Greenhouse at the Chicago Botanic Garden. Bloom is expected in the next couple of days! Peak "stink" will be in the wee hours of the morning, so we'll be open until 2 a.m. for the big event. Keep checking for updates here and @chicagobotanic #CBGSpike.
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.
