Let the vibrant colors and fresh fragrances of spring blooms awaken you from your winter slumber. The Botanical Garden celebrates the season with thousands of tulips, hyacinths and narcissus bulbs planted throughout our outdoor gardens, providing a blanket of brilliant hues to overturn your winter blues. Designed flower boxes and potted arrangements will create a wonderful oasis on the Geis Terrace where you can relax on our new patio furniture and even enjoy the warmth of a fire pit on Wednesday nights when the Botanical Garden is open until 9pm.

Brilliant foliage and flowers will also adorn the Botanical Garden’s hallways and Ellipse, bringing the sights and scents of the season indoors. Imaginative floral designs conjuring the rebirth of this exciting time of year by Scott Robertson, owner and creative designer of Stems Fleur and co-designer of our Orchid Mania show, will be on display in the entranceway and hallways of the Botanical Garden.
