In early June hydrangeas are in full bloom. There are pink and blue mopheads, lacecaps, oakleaf and the popular ‘Annabelle’ with large white lace-like flowers. Later in the summer Hydrangea paniclulata, also known as ” pee gees” come into bloom.
1,000’s of roses continue to flower throughout the Gardens and over 300,000 daylilies of 500 varieties are beginning to bloom now. Japanese iris flourish along the edges of the ponds and provide a strong vertical accent.
Japanese maples glow in the landscape and reflections in the ponds create a dramatic effect. Lush ferns including natives like the cinnamon and royal fern provide interesting architectural elements. Hardy waterlilies are blooming too in shades of pink, white
Check the bloom calendar and take note that with all the mild weather we had in April and May, plants are blooming about two weeks ahead of schedule.
