Every fall, the Lyman Conservatory explodes with a rainbow of color! The annual Fall Chrysanthemum Show features over-sized blooms that can reach eight inches across. Brightly colored chrysanthemums create a cascade of blooms along one greenhouse wall.

A dragon sculpture, by 2014 Smith College graduate Hyun-Jung Oh, is the centerpiece of the show and gives it this year's theme: Dragons!

The horticulture class is showcased each year with a display of their mum hybridizing experiments. Visitors are invited to vote for their favorites. The winner is inducted into the Mum Hall of Fame, an online exhibit.
