Despite the chill outside, Greenwood’s greenhouses are still warm and lush.

Inside the Phoenix Street greenhouses, flowers are blooming and lush sphagnum moss covers the metal frames of Greenwood’s iconic topiaries. A tiger nearly as tall as the greenhouse sits beside a flying pig, a monarch butterfly, a mermaid towering alongside a decorated elephant — and the latest addition to the topiaries, a proud peacock.
