Welcome to the Chicago Botanic Garden Press Room. The public relations staff is happy to assist journalists with stories, on-site visits, interviews, experts, and photos.
With winter approaching, leaves are changing color and trees are looking bare—but not conifers. These trees keep their greens, blues and silvers vibrant throughout the cold months. Tom Weaver oversees the Dwarf Conifer Garden, a four-season garden that includes fragrant trees with eye-catching shapes and textures. He can share advice on taking care of conifers and keeping them vibrant all year-round, as well as other plants that keep gardens colorful in the winter.
