What's In Bloom

Lingering Color! (September 20th, 2018) We are down to the end of bloom season as more and more bloom depart every week. Among the last surviving colors are the stunning Dahlias in the trial bed on three-mile drive and the perennial collection. Pristine gladiolus, verbena and the famous Kiss me Over the Garden Gate are highlighting the annual garden. And thought they are not technically in bloom, the crimson red of the Winterberry fruit is at its peak adding some additional color out on the drive. Be sure to catch the last traces of colorful bloom before the fall colors steal the show!!! While in the gardens, be sure to check out the summer art exhibit Oragami in the Garden for a picturesque and minimalist blend of nature and art, closing October 21st.

(Please note photo information is not avaliable for all blooming plants. See the Right hand collection listings for full plant bloom information or call the Arboretum Bloom Line.)
