What’s happening this month at the Morris Arboretum 
We’re beginning to see early harbingers of spring here at the Morris Arboretum: the buttercup-like flowers of Eranthis hyemalis (winter aconite) have started to bloom—a testament to their late-winter hardiness—and a variety of witchhazels can be found flowering across our 92 acres.

To get the full experience of these early bloomers, join us for February’s featured Witchhazels Tour as well as the Garden Highlights Tour.
Find more information about each below.

We’d also like to remind you that we’re offering a 40% admission discount for adults, seniors, and youth through February.

We look forward to closing out winter with you!
