While the holiday decorations will look different at the United States Botanic Gardens this year, Season’s Greenings: America’s Gardens! at the US Botanic Garden holiday programming will continue in a new and different format. In person, feast your eyes on festive décor, lights, greenery, and winterberries in a couple of select locations at the US Botanic Gardens, including the Terrace Gardens and the Bartholdi Park.
