Posted in Around the Garden on April 12 2017, by Matt Newman

Photo of daffodilsAfter a shaky start to spring, with cold and warm days jostling for the lead, this week’s steady warmth has finally cut the ribbon on the start of the season’s flowers. All across our 250 acres you’ll find collections waking up with purples, pinks, yellows, and whites, providing fragrance and beauty after the long winter.

Have a look at just a few of the highlights to be found this week, then plan your visit to NYBG! It’s only going to get better from here.

Flowering cherries are among the first trees to herald the arrival of spring. Look for them throughout the Garden grounds, where their pink and white blossoms are easily spotted during their fleeting glory.

Thanks for the close-up photo of the Mukdenia rossii 'Karasuba," that's a new plant for me!
