College of the Ozarks Greenhouse

Known as Hard Work U, the College of the Ozarks requires each student to work on campus; their earnings used to cover education costs.  We observed this rule in action at the greenhouse, or multitude of greenhouses, where several students were tending to a wide variety of blooms just waiting to adorn a special space, whether that be a flowerbed…

Not in the market to purchase, we took our time ambling through each greenhouse, capturing those blooms..

In addition to annuals and perennials,  the greenhouse is home to an amazing orchid collection of more than 7,000 varieties!

Located south of Branson, the greenhouse at the College of the Ozarks is one of those free attractions that is indeed priceless!
