I don't know much about flowers or plants. But this was still a pretty good trip. They have lots of different rooms representing different climates and zones. I was surprised by all of the different flowers we got to see.
Bottom line, if you're into shrubbery or looking for something to do on a rainy day in Pittsburgh this is the place.

The cafe here is good at best, but the conservatory is worth a visit, large and well maintained, especially all the different orchids

The flowers here are absolutely amazing. This is well worth the trip. Great ideas for anyone looking for inspiration in their own yards.

Not amazing, but pleasant respite from the cold and snowy April day! Especially loved the cacti! Weather too inclement for viewing outdoor area.

A visit to Phipps in the winter tends to sweep away winter blues. It's a little pricey. There are activities for kids. It's a beautiful and tranquil place.
