Imagine an idyllic, vernal campus carpeted with over half a million blooms. A staggering cascade of flowers will unfold, from tulips to peonies. Thousands of netted iris, crocus, hyacinth, and early daffodils have been planted all across The Garden. Native, perennial wildflowers enhance our wooded spaces. As the weather warms, the outdoor displays begin to swell. Look for the tall, Dr. Seuss-like blooms of Allium stipitatum ‘White Giant’ near the Sutphin Fountain and the slate-purple colored bell-like flowers of the Persian fritillary at the front of Lilly House. For this year’s outdoor exhibition, our team of staff and volunteers planted over 100,000 bulbs. To top it off, our Beer Garden returns in the spring. You’re welcome to grab a beverage and wander The Garden. Visit early and often to watch nature paint the landscape in slow motion at Newfields.
