What's In Bloom

 

Spiraling Upward (Updated July 20)

One of the most noticeable changes in late July is the upward spiral of many of the Arboretum's taller plants. Cannas and giant Black-Eyed Susan varieties, as well as many of the ornamental grasses, make their ascent skyward like so many flora sun worshipers. Dahlias have begun their blooming period this week and will continue now through the first frost. According to Arboretum Director of Operations Alan Branhagen, "Some of the premier 'eye candy' flowers, our daylilies, will have really good bloom for a couple more weeks. They are gorgeous but the names of all the cultivars are half the fun!  We even have the first registered cultivar ('Apricot') for people to look for."
