Welcome

Since Spike, the titan arum (Amorphophallus titanum), is taking longer than normal to open, Garden scientists Tim Pollak, Patrick Herendeen, and Shannon Still checked for pollen inside the spathe. Finding no pollen inside, they conclude the flowers are still viable and maturing. Keep checking for updates here and @chicagobotanic #CBGSpike.

English Walled Garden closes today at 2:30 p.m.

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.
