C of O Attraction Guidebook: C of O Greenhouses

Plant lovers will thoroughly enjoy the C of O Greenhouses on campus at College of the Ozarks. Just adjacent to Edwards Mill, this beautiful collection of orchids and houseplants is in it’s peak during the summer months.

Obviously, when I headed there this past week, the greenhouses weren’t open but I’m anticipating heading back sometime this coming year to check out the collection of plant life.

The campus greenhouses house the Clint McDade orchid collection which totals more than 7,000 plants! McDade was one of the college’s first students and he donated the beginnings of the collection.

Visitors can stop by and just browse the beautiful plants or they can purchase one for their home. Either way, it’s quite the pretty pit stop and just a few feet away from Edwards Mill.

Check back tomorrow night at 6 p.m. for the next blog in the C of O Attraction Guidebook series and read about the Gaetz Tractor Museum.
