On sale in the Palm House Gift Shop: ‘Flowers of Volunteer Park Conservatory’ by photographer and author Sara L. Chapman. The book contains photographs of all the plants in the Conservatory throughout the year with an identification guide.

“This book is for flower lovers everywhere—an exquisite little coffee table book of stunning, sensuous photography. Watch the changing displays of extraordinary tropical flowers and foliage in Seattle’s historic Victorian glass Conservatory. Includes plant names and index. Beautiful, relaxing, inspiring!”


Tne Conservatory Resource Center contains flyers on the different plants in the Conservatory, and materials about Volunteer Park and the Capitol Hill neighborhood. Here you can examine plant parts through a microscope, and browse through the excellent reference books. You can also leave questions for the gardeners if the shop volunteers can’t answer your question.

Stop in and enjoy. Proceeds from the shop help to support and enhance the Conservatory.

The Friends of the Conservatory opened the Gift Shop and Resource Center in February 2003 to help generate a revenue source to support the Conservatory and to provide reference materials for visitors to the Conservatory.
