The blues take center stage in Longwood's Conservatory during its first ever Winter Blues Festival. Blue is one of the rarest colors in the plant world, and Longwood's horticulturists have researched, acquired, and grown hundreds of blue-hued blossoms and foliage for this event. Every Saturday, guests can hear the music of blues artists performing live in the Conservatory.

Here are some of the plants on display when I visited on March 5:
