We may not be in spring yet, but new spring growth is already popping up all over the Garden. This week, Georgiann Keller highlights the colorful bromeliad blooms in the Greenhouse, the bright red amaryllis (Hippeastrum spp.), and a couple of orchids. Listen to the audio blog below to learn more about what’s blooming throughout our 87 acres, then plan a date to come see these beautiful blooms in person.
