WHAT’S IN BLOOM?

Check out our spring blooms calendar!

Below are just a few samples of color that can be seen throughout the year.

 
The tiny leaves of Herneria glabra can take a bit of foot traffic, which is helpful in the Railway Garden. This plant, also known as rupturewort, turns reddish in cooler weather.
Itea virginica ‘Henry’s Garnet’ is a cultivar of Virginia sweetspire that has fragrant white flowers in mid-summer and, as you can see, great fall color.
Summersweet, or Clethra alnifolia ‘Ruby Spice’ blooms in late summer in the Meyer Memorial Pavilion Garden.
Redbuds aren’t all red. This is Cercis canadensis ‘Alba’ in the Meyer Memorial Pavilion Garden.
 Willow bluestar, or Amsonia hubrichtii is a native perennial that turns a gorgeous peachy-golden color in fall. Here in the Welcome Garden, it works well with this annual blue Salvia.
