Coleus and Creatures


Step into a world of prehistoric plants, captivating creatures, and colorful coleus at the Botanical Gardens! Explore the Botanical Gardens to find dozens of creatures made of LIVE plants including dinosaur succulent topiaries, a massive megalodon, a moss-made pterodactyl, a giant buffalo, a dragonfly, turtles, and more planty friends taking on new characters giving "plant-life" a whole new meaning! Looking for some real dinosaurs? Our friends from Past & Present will be showing off their life-size fossil casts including a giant T-Rex skull, a Triceratops skull and some life-like dinos hidden among the foliage. A special thank you to our friends from Past & Present! Past & Present is Buffalo's very own Science and Nature store as well as a Fossil Museum that is free and open to the public! They're your one-stop shop for all things minerals, crystals, fossils and more! Located down the street from us at 3767 South Park Ave in Blasdell, NY. Want to see all of our Coleus & Creatures in a new light? Watch our creatures come to life during Creatures After Dark! On select evenings this October, immerse yourself in a jungle of coleus as we light up the conservatory like never before.
