“tropical heaven in a lovely park”
The W. W. Seymour Botanical Conservatory is a greenhouse located within Wright Park. The Victorian-style conservatory was built in 1907, and named in honor of donor William W. Seymour. Its wings and twelve-sided central dome contain some 3,500 panes of glass. Six sculptures created by former conservator Clarence Deming rest among the plants, and reflect African, Māori, and Aztec traditions. The conservatory now contains more than 550 plant species in its permanent collection, including agapanthus, azaleas, bromeliads, cacti, clivias, cymbidium, epiphyllum, ferns, figs, more than 200 orchids, palms, and rhododendrons. It also contains a rotating exhibit of floral displays that generally features between 300-500 blooming plants at any given time.
