Beginning to Bloom! (Updated March 31) - Early spring blooms are starting to be seen across the Arboretum grounds. Snowdrops can be found in the Woodland Azalea Garden behind the Home Demo Garden. Crocus can be seen coming through the lawn in the Home Demo Garden, as well as those shown below in the Rock Garden next to the Japanese Garden. The pastel colors and gentle beauty of the European Pasque Flower will delight visitors to the Slade Perennial Garden behind the Snyder Building. Stop at the Information Desk in the Visitor Center to pick up a Visit Map before you head out to find these hardy early bloomers.
