Falls Greenhouse (Canada)
Located 500 metres (½ mile) south of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, this attraction was constructed by The Niagara Parks Commission and opened in 1946. In 1980 a reception centre and display house were added to the original 1,022 square metre (11,000 square foot) greenhouse
Niagara Parks have long been famous for picturesque gardens, floral displays and special indoor conservatory exhibitions.
Following old European traditions, Commission gardeners have for years produced unusual plantings. These intricate floral designs utilize colourful dwarf foliage plants, such as Alternanthera, Santolina and Echeveria. This type of gardening is referred to as "Carpet Bedding", and dates back to the Romans. One of the best examples of this ancient floral art, is on the face of the Floral Clock, where about 19,000 plants are used annually.
