Exuberant Blooms

Join us this month for blooms, trains, discounted admission, and more!

Don’t miss our newest exhibit, Exuberant Blooms—only here through the summer! Wander through paisley beds of summer-blooming annuals and tropicals, and see the pollinators, including butterflies and hummingbirds, hard at work. Then stop by the Garden Railway to see our beloved miniature trains rolling on 300 feet of additional new track.

And in honor of our 90th year as a public garden, we are offering TWO special events this month: a discounted community weekend (admission only $9!) and a bomb-diggity 90s-style dance party for kids of all ages during Bloomin’ Bubbles.

All this and so much more at the Morris Arboretum & Gardens!
