with Garden General Admission Tickets! 

Awaken your senses at the Garden this spring with Bloom! Beginning April 1, the Garden will come alive with new blooms and pollinators a flutter. Throughout this exhibit, we will ask you to tap into your senses, and – ultimately – live in the moment.

The journey will begin in the courtyard with a stunning display that will transform the area into our first photo moment. Guests will then be guided to a variety of areas in the Garden that are newly planted, where the flowers are awakening, and ultimately lead you to the Amphitheater Lawn where we’ve  seeded a custom wildflower mix that is expected to begin blooming in May. This colorful and unique display of flora will invite guests to become immersed in the beauty and grounded in the moment with a variety of photo opportunities. As the season continues and new flowers arrive, the experience will continue to Bloom! 

Bloom! was created by the Garden team and Mother Nature – you won’t find it anywhere else!

Accessibility: Some areas of Bloom! might be impassable for wheelchairs or those with mobility issues. Our accessibility shuttle is available Monday-Friday upon request and runs regularly on the weekends. Also, please note, some areas of the exhibit may have limited access during private events. Please check our closures page for more information.

Bloom! Watch…

Mother Nature can be fickle. Since much of this exhibit is new plantings Bloom! will constantly be in flux as the flora flourishes and fades. To help keep you up to date of what’s currently in bloom, we will refresh this section regularly. Check back soon!

The end of spring is near and we know this because the clarika heave, also known as “Farewell-to-spring” began to bloom. These flowers are the last of the California native flowers to bloom before the start of summer. Make sure to check them out in the Amphitheater Lawn.
