Many beautiful floral displays await you, as spring returns to the Chicago Botanic Garden. Daffodil blooms are now giving way to masses of tulips. Look for flowering crabapples in the gardens—we are expecting the bloom around the Great Basin in the next week! Minor bulbs such as squills and grape hyacinth are making a big splash in the Bulb Garden. The Fruit and Vegetable Garden has been planted with colorful combinations of spring vegetables and annuals. McDonald Woods has come to life with a carpet of trout lilies, spring cress, Virginia bluebells, spring beauty, bloodroot, and other pretty little wildflowers. To add a finishing touch, spring annuals have been planted, including pansies, nemesia, toadflax, and sweet alyssum. Come and enjoy our spring blooms at the Chicago Botanic Garden!
