Featured Plants

Be it blooms, bark, leaf structure, or seeds/fruits, there’s something new to discover almost every day! Some flowers are small and easy to miss, especially alpine and rock garden plants, so be sure to take your time as you walk through.

Below is a small sampling of what’s in bloom. Blooms generally last two weeks, sometimes less and sometimes more, so please note the week indicated at the top of each section. If there’s something specific you’d like to see, feel free to call ahead for an update.
