Bloomin' 8.29.19

Late summer is a wonderful time of year to enjoy the fullness of the gardens. The perennials throughout the grounds are large and lush.

Blooming 6.7.19

The summer weather and blooms have arrived at Willowwood! Throughout the gardens, the flower beds are full of yellow flowers in such bold hues that one can nearly forget the pastel shades that filled the garden just a few weeks ago. Some of those flowers include Baptisia sphaerocarpa ‘Screamin’ Yellow’ in the Rosarie and Thermopsis villosa in the Cottage Garden, which have tall spikes of bright yellow flowers.

Lilacs + Lots more in Bloom 5.24.19

The lilac season is still underway at Willowwood! The late-blooming lilacs, such as Preston Lilac (Syringa x prestoniae), Henry Lilac (Syringa x henryi) and Yunnan Lilac (Syringa yunnanensis), are just starting to bloom and should peak this upcoming week. Many of the mid-season lilacs still have fragrant blooms as well so it is a pleasure to walk among them in Highland Park. Another plant we are anxiously awaiting to bloom, are the peonies, which have just begun to flower.

(Mother Nature willing!) Many of our spring favorites will be in bloom just in time for Mother’s Day! Our wisteria arbor between the barns and in the Cottage Garden alongside the propagation greenhouse will be peaking this weekend. The arbors are covered in Japanese Wisteria (Wisteria floribunda) which has gorgeous violet blooms. We also have a white-flowering Wisteria (Wisteria sinensis ‘Alba) on the arbor in Pan’s Garden.
