Get an intimate look at Hillwood’s gardens with the experts! Jason Gedeik, head of design operations, highlights the greenhouses throughout Orchid Month in March.

While many public gardens have tropical and orchid displays, Hillwood is one of the few in the Mid-Atlantic region to have a working greenhouse where visitors can tour on their own all year. 

Marjorie Post had the greenhouses constructed to house her extensive collection of exotic orchids, as well as cut flowers grown for floral arrangements throughout the mansion. Tour the working greenhouse and learn more about its history, Post’s infatuation with orchids, and the exotic blooms and fragrances on display now.
