Baltimore’s favorite harbinger of spring is the Conservatory’s annual bulb show. This showcase of unique varieties of tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, and grape hyacinths also features grasses, desert plants, and tillandsias grown in the Cylburn Arboretum’s greenhouses. The plant material, along with grand hand-made sea creatures, colorful crafts, and wonderful objects borrowed from Second Chance, Inc., will become an immersive experience in an underwater world. Come visit the Octopus’s Garden!
