Daffodil Hill & Liasson Valley

The show is starting! Hundreds of thousands of Daffodils are in full bloom right now, lighting up our spring landscape. 

Rock Garden

This garden has made quite the Spring debut this year. Painted with brilliant swathes of Iris ‘Harmony’, Leucojum vernum, and various Narcissus, the landscape appears to have eagerly leapt out of its winter slumber. You will want to lean in and get a closer look at the troughs near the gate; they are brimming with sweet little surprises like the tiny flowers of Draba and Phlox.

Home Gardening Center

Daffodils and Viola are blooming here now, providing a nice bit of cheer as the rest of the garden wakes up. They are joined by Hyacinthus and Corylopsis spicata.

Perennial Garden

Daffodils, early tulips and Viola are complemented by sweet swathes of Scilla siberica.

Tree of the Week: Yoshino cherry, Prunus x yedoensis ‘Akebono’

Flowering cherries are among the first trees to herald the arrival of spring. Look for them throughout the Garden grounds, where their pink and white blossoms are easily spotted during their fleeting glory. The venerable Yoshino cherry, often called the Daybreak cherry, with blushing petals is not to be missed near the Visitor Center reflecting pool. You’ll find more ‘Akebono’ in bloom near the entrance to Cherry Valley. 

 

Perennial of the Week: maple saxifrage - Mukdenia rossi ‘Karasuba’

Short stalks of charming pinkish white flowers float over emerging fan shaped foliage on this Korean perennial. Located at the south end of the Azalea Garden, it loves moist, rich soil and partial shade.
