September 2014 flower festivals at Gibbs Gardens
Click on each flower above for a photo tour of these flower festivals.
The Annuals and Perennials Festival continues all year with colors and plantings changing every three weeks
"September days are here
With summer's best of weather and autumn's best of cheer."
The Gardens are in their summer glory—with peak flowering right now—before the sun slips slowly into the southern sky, signaling a change of seasons.
Take advantage of the golden days of September. Flowerbeds thick with a rainbow of lush annuals and vibrant perennials overflow from the Manor House Gardens' seven terraces, creating a dazzling panorama of color.
The Waterlily Gardens take center stage in September
