Mitchell Park Domes

Scrooooge Holiday Show

The Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory's Show Dome is transformed 5 times each year. Each Show Dome display has a specific theme, generally categorized as historical, cultural or fantasy, and is chosen at least a year in advance. Plants are selected specifically for a particular floral exhibit and grown in the Greenhouses located at the Mitchell Park Domes. Once in place, a show may last from six to fourteen weeks. Please note that Show Dome is closed for approximately two weeks between shows to transistion to the new theme.

  • Scrooge Holiday Floral Show

    NOVEMBER 17 - JANUARY 6

    The "Scroooogeholiday floral show follows the story line of Charles Dickens "The Christmas Carol". The colors of the poinsettias range from 'Candlelight White' (for the winter setting of the story), dark red (to be on the more grim side of things) and gold (for the celebratory parts of the story).  The trees are inspired by the 4 ghosts that visit Ebenezer Scrooge;  Jacob Marley and the ghosts of Christmas 'Past', 'Present' and 'Yet to come'. The 5th tree is Tiny Tim's family Christmas tree. In addition to the poinsettias the show includes classic holiday plant staples like Amaryllis, Cyclamen and Dusty Miller.
