Welcome

Come to the Chicago Botanic Garden, where the "big blooms" start to open in this last week of May: herbaceous peonies like 'Red Charm' and viburnums like 'Lanarth'…swaths of blue wild indigo at the Lakeside Gardens…and the stop-you-in-your-tracks flowers on the buckeye trees dotted throughout the grounds.

Planning your summer shade garden? This weekend's Northern Illinois Hosta Society Show & Sale is a great opportunity to compare varieties and chat with hosta aficionados.

And big news at Butterflies & Blooms: the first few blue morphos have emerged!
