After brunch, treat Mom to a stroll through more than 68,000 plants bursting in a kaleidoscope of colors in the Noelridge Greenhouse complex. But that’s not all. The annual showcase also features educational exhibits turning the spotlight on bonsai, beekeeping, orchids, pollinators and butterflies. Forget to buy Mom a gift? Bring along some green of your own to shop through an assortment of professionally designed hanging baskets, coleus plants, glass birdbaths and birdfeeders, cactus cocktails, succulent sundaes and handcrafted cards available for sale. Bonus: Everyone will receive a free butterfly milkweed plant to take home — while supplies last.

Mother’s Day Showcase

10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday (5/13), Noelridge Greenhouse, 4900 Council St. NE, Cedar Rapids; free admission; (319) 286-5762
