Mid-Spring Blooms (Updated May 19) - Late lilacs are still in spectacular bloom, as can be seen right at the gatehouse as visitors enter the grounds. Azaleas are putting on quite a show in the Woodland Azalea Garden, but also in the lesser-known Azalea Trials just past the Harrison Sculpture Garden on Three-Mile Drive. Many of the shrub collections on the drive are in late spring bloom as well. The Dayton Wildflower Garden has lots of beautiful spring blossoms too.
