Spring Blooms at the Garden

Spring at the Garden is the most beautiful time of year and it’s all due to the MBG horticulture staff’s hard work of planting thousands of bulbs during the winter months. Here’s what to look for when you visit in March:
The small Crocus flowers are members of the iris family and one of the first to come up. You’ll find purple, yellow, orange, and striped varieties in our display beds. Some of the of Daffodil varieties started blooming the first week of February this year. However, you’ll see hundreds still blooming on Daffodil Hill, just as they have been every year since this area was dedicated in 1973. There are 75 species of Tulips with thousands of cultivars and we have several different ones displayed throughout the Garden. ‘Baroque’ is a double tulip featuring a fabulous blend of purples that you’ll find in the Little Garden Club of Memphis Sensory Garden. Hyacinths originate in the Mediterranean and are fragrant, showy flower that is a favorite of many gardeners. The Allium bulbs our staff planted along Celebration Stroll were as big as a softball! We can’t wait to see these huge flowers blooming.
This beautiful display of spring flowering bulbs was made possible through our Valentine’s Love Blooms donation program. If you received one of these Valentines, we hope that you will come out in March to visit the flowers that were planted in your honor!
