Horticulture, What's In Bloom

Staff Picks

These lovely water lilies (Nymphea hardy water lily) in the children’s garden remind me of being young and catching frogs in the pond. – Tina, IT Coordinator

Now that we’re open until 6pm it’s fun to see how the vibrant colors look against the early evening sky. The deep purple of this larkspur (Delphinium ‘Pagan Purples’) in the Lerner Garden of the Five Senses is so dramatic! – Kris, Director of Marketing

How lovely is the name, Tutti Frutti Series Yarrow? Or, wearing its fancy pants, Achillea millefolium Tutti Frutti Series ‘Apricot Delight.’ This feathery, festive flower calls to pollinators and people alike in the pollinator garden outside of the Children’s Garden. Don’t let its delicacy fool you—this is one hardy bloom — perfect for a Maine coast summer! – Amy, Writer/Editor

The primroses (Primula japonica and Primula X bullesiana) around the Slater Forest Pond are delicious, sherbet colors, and are whimsical additions for those damp, shady places! – Tory, Digital Marketing Coordinator

Due to staff planting the number of trees and shrubs, our full list of blooming and peaking plants is on a temporary hiatus, and will return soon!
