Flora Borealis runs June 29 through August 26, and is closed Wednesdays in July.

Tickets are date and time-specific for crowd control purposes. To ensure the best experience, please arrive to the Garden at least 15 minutes prior to entry time.
Garden grounds will open at 7 p.m. nightly for all ticket holders. Visitors are invited to stroll the Garden grounds, sip cocktails, enjoy family friendly activities and listen to live music prior to dusk. When the sun sets, the magic of Flora Borealis begins. Visitors of all ages will embark on a one-mile walking journey through the Garden like never before.

Interactive exhibits and stunning visuals will guide visitors through the exhibit.
Nymphea, the first water lily developed at the Garden in 1931, serves as the narrator as guests journey through the Garden’s history in St. Louis, and transforms the thought of plant biodiversity from an idea to an Aurora of sound and light.

A trailer for Flora Borealis is available on the Garden’s YouTube channel.
The Missouri Botanical Garden partnered with AVI Systems, Inc. to execute Flora Borealis. AVI has a strong local presence in the St. Louis area and has an extensive history of design-build services for traditional and experiential audio visual projects. Montreal-based Christie 360 Experiential Studios was responsible for design and production. Christie Digital is a world leader in creating and sharing visual and audio experiences.

The Missouri Botanical Garden’s mission is “to discover and share knowledge about plants and their environment in order to preserve and enrich life.” Today, 159 years after opening, the Missouri Botanical Garden is a National Historic Landmark and a center for science, conservation, education and horticultural display.
