The spring bloom season has begun with gorgeous colors throughout the grounds. The first magnolias are in bloom in the Magnolia Collection near Parking Lot 5 and in other locations across the Arboretum. Spring bulbs are also emerging throughout the grounds. The spring witch-hazels and skunk-cabbage have been showcasing their blooms on the West Side. Daffodils have started flowering on both East and West Sides. In the woodlands, look for the early-blooming hepaticas near Parking Lot 11.
