An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until May 12, 2024

This year’s Spring Flower Show, What’s in a Name?, explains the history and science of botanical nomenclature alongside a beautiful flower show full of blooms.  Plant names are an important way of communicating history, culture, and identity. In addition, because there are many plants with the same common name, or many common names for the same plant, knowing the botanical name helps people know exactly which plant is which. Learn about how to identify plants amongst stunning spring blooms like Tulipa ‘Rococo’, Lilium ‘Josephine’, Viola ‘Matrix Yellow’ and Anemone ‘Giant Blue Poppy’.

The Spring Flower Show opens on February 14th,  and runs through May 12th, 2024, in the Show House and is included with every reservation.
