UPDATE: In response to concerns around COVID-19, and in an effort to ensure the health and safety of Boston’s citizens, yesterday Mayor Martin J. Walsh announced the mandatory closure of all Boston museums. As a result, the Gardner Museum will close to the public beginning Wednesday, December 16, 2020 (we are regularly closed Tuesdays), and remain closed for a minimum of three weeks.
On view: December - January
Holidays are a special time to come to the Gardner, where the festive Courtyard features dark forest greens and shades of red and silver. This holiday tradition showcases masses of flowering jade trees, silver dusty miller, green aloe, and the dark red winter blooms of amaryllis.
The jades (Crassula argentea) in the Courtyard have been raised in the Museum’s greenhouse for many years. The largest of them, with trunks five to six inches in diameter, are over 60 years old. Their small starry white flowers cover their large spreading branches over three feet high.
Please note that the Courtyard displays are part of a living collection and as such the actual flowers may be different than what is described on our website.
