Colors Abound! (Updated July 19th, 2018) -  We are in the heat of summer and the gardens are thick with bloom. The Terrace Gardens, Annual and Perennial Collections, Herb and Home Demonstration Gardens are just a few of the many places to find vibrant abundances of color. Among the highlights are Lilies, Dahlias, Coneflowers, Heliotrope, Snapdragons, Daylilies, Yarrow and so many more. 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.

(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.)
