What's in Bloom

Summer heat has filled the garden beds on Evening Island with flowering hibiscus, roses, cup plants, and black-eyed Susans. Lush flowering vines such as trumpet creepers and passion flower wind their way up trellises and walls in the Circle and Lakeside Gardens. Bees and butterflies drift from pink cosmos to orange zinnias in the Buehler Enabling Garden. Squash, beans, and melons fill the Regenstein Fruit & Vegetable Garden. Wrap up the warm summer days here at the Chicago Botanic Garden.
