Floral Plaque on Conservatory Valley West
Summer 2019

The flower beds of Conservatory Valley have seen their fair share of “flower designs,” from celebrating local or international organizations, conventions, historical, and special events. In spring 2019, the floral plaque on the West side of the valley will continue this tradition on with a new design, built in honor of the Conservatory of Flowers 140 years.




Whether you’re a native San Franciscan, a visitor from another side of the world, or a classroom of budding botanists, the Conservatory of Flowers offers an intimate up-close experience with rare and endangered plants unlike any other. Come see what treasures await you!
