Although winter is in full swing in the Windy City, there are signs of spring blooming.

Spring flowers are on display at the annual flower show at the Chicago Park District's conservatories from now through the actual arrival of spring.

"Our expert horticulturists have grown a wide variety of beautiful plants that will keep people in the spirit of spring while they wait for the weather to warm up," said Chicago Park District general superintendent Tim Mitchell.

More than 3,000 spring blooming flowers will be displayed at the Lincoln Park Conservatory and the Garfield Park Conservatory through May 8.

The annual Spring Flower Shows offer visitors a chance to experience the beauty of spring during the frigid winter months at no cost.

Featured flowers include direct descendents of the great azaleas that once bloomed at the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893, as well as other azaleas and a changing selection of spring blooming annuals and perennials.

"The Conservatory Flower Shows are a wonderful way to get into the spirit of spring," said Conservatory Director Mary Eysenbach. "The changing spring floral displays give visitors an opportunity to see something new each and every time they visit."

While viewing stunning blooms may help beat the winter blues, receiving fresh flowers may have a similar effect.

According to, popular varieties of spring flowers include daffodils, tulips, hyacinths, orchids and peonies.
