What’s in Bloom

November

Now thru November, our 220 acres of hills and valley are ablaze with fall color.  Over 2000 Japanese maples of more than 150 varieties will provide fall color throughout the gardens.  The early mid and late varieties of Japanese maples will come into color every 2 weeks.  The magnificent colors of red, orange, and yellow will continue to thrill our visitors.

In our 8 acre wildflower meadow, the Sumacs paint the hills with shades of red as the Astors and golden rods complete their bloom.

Don’t miss seeing the largest display of water lilies in the nation in a natural environment.

Over 200 beautiful tropical and hardy water lilies, of all colors, are in bloom near the Monet Bridge.

The roses continue to bloom in Gibbs Gardens with over 1,000 roses of varying colors.

Flower baskets, of varying colors and textures, cover our entrance bridges as you cross the streams and waterfalls to the welcome center.
