Striking blue and white lights wrap Longwood Garden’s 24-foot East Tree in a festive holiday glow, complemented by stacks of bold blue and silver gifts circling the foot of the tree. The stunning and unique tree might just be the centerpiece of A Longwood Garden Christmas, the holiday event happening right now near Heather Glen Apartments.

Each year, Longwood Gardens pays homage to holiday traditions with a display of glammed-up greenhouses and decked-out trees. Although this year will include masks and social-distancing, otherwise, it will be no different! A mix of rich red and white poinsettias snake in a winding pattern along the fern floor, which is bookended by more traditionally decorated holiday trees. And, outside, faux icicles drip from overhead as “frosted” branches glimmer softly in the waning evening light.
