Plant Biology Greenhouse and Conservatory
SIU is fortunate to have a diverse collection of living plants from all over the world in the Plant Biology Greenhouse. This facility serves a number of functions including the teaching and research missions of the Department of Plant Biology as well as the University and region. The Greenhouse is open to the public during normal business hours, so if you want a "tropical experience" in the middle of the Midwestern winter, pay us a visit!

Much of the Greenhouse plant diversity has been photographically indexed, so you can conduct your own virtual tour before paying an actual visit.
