Botanic Gardens hosts Winter Fire Color Show

Botanic Gardens hosts Winter Fire Color Show

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The Botanic Gardens can help warm up the chilly weather, but in a unique way that smells amazing.

The Winter Fire Colors show can provide relief from this winter’s chill with the hot colors from the Mediterranean climate.

The Mediterranean Conservatory has been housing 300 Anthuriums over the past few weeks. The orange Kalnchoes, pink Fairy Primroses and red Bromileads will be a treat for both the eyes and nose.

Show-goers get the opportunity to see and smell the eye-catching Cultivar. Its wild ancestors of China’s Yunnan Province grow like weeds at elevations of 5,000 to 9,000 feet.

Outside, this flower can endure mild summer and winter conditions, but shielded indoors, the Cultivar vibrantly blossoms during the winter.

The vivacious colors are sure to bring colorful life to the cold midwinter.

The show runs through Feb. 23 every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
