Dogwoods, magnolias, wisterias, azaleas, foamflowers, and more than 240,000 tulips herald spring’s arrival at Longwood Gardens.

Spring arrived with a dusting of snow this year...but in just the past few days, magnolia trees have burst into plump pink buds that boast "Spring is here!"  But if you're craving more, (and who isn't!) head for Longwood Gardens, where you'll feel mother nature exploding all around you!

Lilacs in the Square Garden
In spring The Meadow Garden is alive with flowering trees and a robust layer of herbaceous plants. Tulips wind around most pathways...White Wisteria drapes like nature's gossamer curtains from the trees...and lilacs stand guard at the Square Garden.

Plan your visit early - and purchase 'timed' admission tickets because admission is limited each day.
