The Garden is full of color and scents this week – you’ll have to smell it to believe it! Chocolate daisies are currently blooming in the Pollination Garden. These small yellow daisies have a scent that resembles the candy they’re named after. The Fuchsia Garden is flowering with its hot and soft pinks, magentas, reds and purple blossoms that can be found in the hanging baskets. The cacti in the Desert Collection are also beginning to bloom in shades of pink, yellow and orange. Learn more about what’s blooming in the Garden by listening to Georgiann Keller’s audio blog below. Then invite a friend to explore our 87 acres and find your favorite flowers from this week.
